Republicans have no idea how good they have it. Back in 2012, the GOP presidential field looked like it was made up of guys who had responded to a Craigslist ad. While only three candidates — Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio — have officially announced that they’ll be pursuing the Republican nomination in 2016, each member of that trio could plausibly be argued to have more political talent than the entire 2012 field combined.
