How can EWA be helpful in covering 2012 Republican candidates for president?

I heard a half-serious prediction yesterday that Michelle Rhee would be selected as the vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party in 2012, and that got me thinking about education in the 2012 Republican campaign, and how to promote good coverage (as opposed to amusing rumors). Are there ways EWA could be helpful? An effort to compile coverage on the various candidates? I realize of course that the candidates don’t exactly seem focused on education, but there are some interesting issues out there in that Pawlenty has pushed distance education

Governor Perry (if he runs) is in the midst of big controversies with UT Austin and Texas A&M right now, etc. What do people think?
