Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) will roll out a new promotional video tonight in New Hampshire, which is drawing comparisons to an action movie trailer.

Pawlenty's Freedom First PAC will formally premiere the new video to promote his book, "Courage to Stand," at a reception of the Merrimack County GOP in New Hampshire.

The video features Pawlenty vocal clips over soaring visuals and dramatic music, prompting comparisons to an action movie.

The high production values, of course, suggest that the former GOP governor is moving closer toward formally getting in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. That he's premiering the video in New Hampshire, which hosts the nation's first presidential primary, is no accident.
