WHO'S WHO: The 55-year-old former Tennessee governor recently withdrew from the presidential race. A self-styled pro-life conservative (though he's left himself lots of wiggle room), Alexander retains the appeal of a moderate.
PLUSES: Southern appeal and decent conservative credentials fall short of scaring moderates away.
MINUSES: Social conservatives may sense he's not really one of them. And Tennessee won't win the White House.
