    I don't know. I think it'll be someone that is under the radar right now.

    Jeb Bush may give it a go. You never know.
    There will never be another Bush in office unless some of the kids or grandkids run.

    Jeb is clean and articulate.

    Heck, if Obama is deemed a failure by the majority of the public, the republicans could nominate anyone (except Palin) and they would win. 2nd term elections are a referendum on the incumbent.

    Clean? Please explain what you meant by that? You mean not corrupt or something else?

    It was a joke. Biden said that about Obama during the Democrat Primaries.

    Huckabee has a certain charisma and likeability and he did well in the Republican debates. In fact, the debates are what helped put him on the map. I think he could do well against Obama, even though I'd never vote for him.

    I also think Gingrich would do well. Newt is incredibly intelligent and there is a certain power or authority to his way of speaking. Plus, he's good unscripted and off the cuff, which is not Obama's strongest point. I think Newt would be the strongest in arguing the nuts and bolts of policy of any of the choices. All in all, I think Newt would be the strongest in a debate if he was in a position to go "offensive", and challenge the effectiveness of Obama's policies. That would presume Obama is vulnerable and the possible issues surrounding that vulnerability would probably trump issues folks have with Gingrich's personal baggage and likeability. Huckabee is less situational and able to hold his own and then some no matter what the perception of Obama is.

    Where did I say Newt would? A negative statement as to one person is not an affirmative to all others.

    For what it's worth, Newt might do fine in a debate, but he would be a terrible candidate because he's a pretty horrible person. But now that you mention it...

    Besides politics, Gingrich has authored a book, Rediscovering God in America, attempting to demonstrate that the Founding Fathers actively intended the new republic to not only allow, but encourage, religious expression in the public square. Since Gingrich has, "dedicated much of his time to calling America back to our Christian heritage," Jerry Falwell invited him to be the speaker, for the second time, at Liberty University's graduation, on May 19, 2007.
