While the crap sandwich the kids like to call…honestly, the stimulus is going to pass thanks to two GOP sellouts, so why bother with the catchy nickname? So while congress mortgages away my children and grandchildren’s future (providing I ever have kids in the first place), the Republican party continues with our rebuilding. All eyes turn to who the next batch of leaders are and shall be.
Chris Cilliza from the Washington Post has an interesting list (with analysis from Geraghty the Indispensable) that makes a good jumping off point. Numbers one thru ten are from Cilliza, eleven and twelve are mine (just so I could make it a dirty dozen). And since his list was made prior to the nomination of our new RNC Chair, I replaced Rush Limbaugh (#8 ) with Michael Steele.
If you have any others you think should be on the list, or that I should keep an eye on, let me know…
12. Jim Tedisco (R-NY)
11. (tie) Jim DeMint/Tom Coburn
10. Rob Portman
9. Eric Cantor
8. Michael Steele
7. Mike Huckabee
6. Tim Pawlenty
5. Mark Sanford
4. Bobby Jindal
3. Mitt Romney
2. Haley Barbour
1. Sarah Palin
I would also keep an eye on Newt Gingrich, the NY duo of Rudy Giuliani and Pete King, the California duo of Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina, and due to recent polls the gubernatorial candidates for New Jersey and Virginia, Christopher Christie and Robert F. McDonnell respectively.
