    Not.

    I picked Santorum because I didn't much care for the liberal way that Newt, and Mitt were attacking each other, however it is the General that matters, and any of our candidates will crush Obama in the fall as long as they keep the focus on what it should be on, and that is the failing record that Obama wants to run away from.

    Eighty, Democrats are scared of Republicans, and Republicans are scared of Democrats. I do not see how this gives anyone a leg-up in the conversation. I was scared of Palin getting the VP slot, just as I am scared of Kucinich getting the keys to the land.

    I would agree on both counts.

    Well, the question I would ask you is, does Newt Gingrich getting the nomination cause some fear for you? It does not to me, but if it does, I hope you aren't contradicting yourself in order to dismiss Newt's impact (positive impact that scares liberals, according to Eighty's implied meaning), which liberals sometimes did with Palin.

    Fear? Not the nomination. I really don't believe he can win. But, he is more a politician than Snatorum, and not quite as nutter. I remeber Newt from the conservative revolution. He didn't fare well then, as far as being electable, and I don't think he'll fare well now.

    Now as for his impact? He has ideas that catch on. He was largely responsible for the conservative revolution with the contract with America stuff. And I bought into some of that. But he wouldn't be good for America over all. Not Santorum bad, not Palin bad. But bad all the same.

    For me, I find I always want better choices in both parties, and rarely if ever see them.

    So if in some crazy universe, Gingrich gets the nomination, and it looks close for the general election, you are not fearful?

    No. I would be shocked if he won the general. But say even that happened. We survived Bush and others. We would survive Newt. And like with Bush and Obama, the worse possible thing for a party is to have everything with no meaningful opposition. The penulum may just swing faster today.

    Nope. Never said I approve of it. Just said it is irrelevant when looking at what kind of job he'll do as president.

    Maybe I should have been more clear. While the Dems are very vulnerable this year, my personal belief is that they fear Gingrich more, in that they see him as more formidable than the other candidates. That Gingrich has been able to gather as much momentum as he has, when so many wrote him off, is something they did not expect. That one can rally as he has is something we have not seen in GOP politics in a very long time.

    I have no fear of Kucinich getting the keys, btw. Not that I trust him with them .... hardly. He'll just never get them.
