That title is of course the quote of the day-if not the fast receding year from (Director Blue) Doug Ross @ journal AT THIS LINK
Doug goes on to present ( "Newt Gingrich just rang up a few extra points in my tally" plus some more colorful language than generally found on my sedate blog) the Gingrich article that I broke a few days ago in which he held out to Palin the Veep office or the sec of Energy role in his (hopefully) forthcoming administration.
Smitty at "The Other McCain" has a long and, as expected, well thought out series of observations " Newt Throws A Hail Sarah Pass"? on the Gingrich/Palin scenario-all in a positive manner and on Palin herself. Well worth reading AT THIS LINK
Here below is my original article on the possibly came changing subject.
"I can't imagine anyone who would do a better job than Palin"
At last one of the leading candidates has the courage to offer what all of them should have offered Palin when she decided not to run-a major role in their new administration.
It is a matter of much personal satisfaction to me that it is Gingrich who has made the obvious, and required move as I was one of the first to recognize Gingrich's incipient rise in the polls. The rise is foretold was not because it was Gingrich's turn as the "Not Romney of the month" but because he alone has the debate skills, policy knowledge knowledge experience, both domestic and foreign, to be a viable opponent for Obama.
Further he is a genuine conservative and, vitally I believe he would be the best candidate to propound and more importantly, bring Palin's points of view, ethical, moral, religious and policy, to his administration without flip-flopping.
Gingrich includes Palin is a list of possible VP's. This is of course acceptable and sensible. He has the right to choose whom he wishes based on regional balance etc and who he thinks would bring in the most votes. However Palin as Secretary of Energy is a sitter and there should have been no reason why any of the other candidates, if they had the guts and were not afraid of the leftist media, did not offer it to her.
I am proud of Gingrich for his statement which simply reinforces that he is far and away the best available candidate.
