    Perhaps, but putting Newt in charge would be giving the finger to social cons. Newt has so much social baggage it's ridiculous. Going from a "pro-Choice" leader to a "left my cancer stricken wife after surgery and cheated on my second wife while I went after Clinton" isn't necessarily the best action if you wish to keep a vital part of your party happy.

    So you considering Obama on the right then? After all, he got a loophole for hedge funds. He's still backing corporate welfare. He's still maintaining many of the Bush war on terror policies. He cut taxes for millions. He gave bonus depreciation to millions of companies. Hardly "Communist."

    I do not share anything with Communists, your side does, Bolsheivik.
    You share many traits with communists comrade, notably considering American soldiers your enemy. The paranoia and us-vs them mentality is also textbook soviet thought. Throw in authoritarian tendencies and desire to suppress political opponents, and you could probably do fine in the politburo.

    I was under the impression that Rush Limbaugh already ran the GOP so, this is a no brainer.

    Most of the social conservatives I know don't have a problem with Newt, despite his past indiscretions. Hypocritical? Yeah, but hey, its not my problem. I think Newt could really excel in this role.

    Think Newt has aspirations beyond the role of "party chairman". The position would be somewhat of a back step for him.

    Fred Thompson wouldn't be a bad choice. Has a re-assuring confidence/quality about him that would be a good fit. JC Watts another reasonable candidate...although would suspect there to be predictable accusations from the left of "pandering to blacks" with Watts following Steele.

    Also always been a fan of Huckaby....

    Really though who are we kidding? Any white man on this list is already disqualified. The GOP will go with a hispanic, middle eastern, or woman to show that they have "variety" amongst their ranks. Remember people with the GOP nowadays, it's all about perception and not conception.
