Quote from First Read

Remember that before defeating Obama in 2012, Republicans first are going to have to find a candidate who can beat him. Will it be Romney, who finished a disappointing second to Paul in the straw poll? Will it be Pawlenty, who declared on Friday that he wants to take “a 9-iron and smash the window of big government in this country," but who was unable to tell NBC’s David Gregory which government programs he wanted to cut? Will it be Gingrich? Palin? Someone else? In short, until Republicans have a candidate, it’s silly for anyone to begin making declarations about an election three years from now.


  • Three years is a long time. On the other hand, someone from the right is going to have to start making election noises soon.
    Right now, I'm thinking Gingrich/Palin.

  • I keep thinking Gingrich is gonna be the guy, but the rank and file just don't seem to like him.

    Of all of them, he's probably the one I feart most as he's smart, and very good at the soundbyte, but he just doesn't seem to catch with the street.

  • That's a really interesting point!

    Hmmm... maybe it's some part of trust before turning over your will and soul and.....
