(Jason Reed/Reuters) Sadly, President Obama won’t have the architect of the GOP’s Medicare-repeal plan to kick around on the campaign trail next year: The dream is dead.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) definitely is not running for President. Explains Ryan: I sincerely appreciate the support from those eager to chart a brighter future for the next generation.

The Intrade numbers are more a statement on Romney, the shaky frontrunner (ex-frontrunner?) and Bachmann’s fading star than on Perry as of yet.
