The Hello Bar is a simple web toolbar that engages users and communicates a call to action.

Yesterday, Tim Pawlenty released a video in which he announced that today he will announce his candidacy for President of the United States. His announcement of the announcement has some punch to it and I, like William Jacobsen, hope that means that T-Paw will have some fire in his campaign. That said, the video begins silly and ends with some truly bad music that threatens to drown Pawlenty out. It’s not a great idea to tell folks that you’re not going to announce your campaign with a speech while pre-announcing your campaign with a speech.

Or perhaps I’m just reading too much into it. It ends well enough, assuming you can hear what he’s saying over the bad keyboards. Take a look and judge for yourself. I do hope he does well; as I’ve said before, I want as many strong candidates in the race throwing hard shots at the President and honing their own policies.

UPDATE: And he’s in, with some pretty strong words about how he’ll try to end ethanol subsidies.
