As the race for the Republican presidential nomination hots up, the candidates have been dropping hints about their possible running mates. Newt Gingrich today said he would ‘certainly’ consider asking Sarah Palin to join him on the ballot, while Mitt Romney was accompanied on a campaign stop this morning by Chris Christie, the popular Governor of New Jersey. Both those GOP heavyweights were thought of as potential candidates for the top job before announcing that they did not intend to run.
Sorry, there was no one more supportive of Palin than me until it became quite clear that she is all about …herself. Yes, her instincts on many issues are good and I would align with them BUT to be honest I would be just as happy never to hear from her again. The moment comes and then it goes. Plus, I don’t think Gingrich will beat Romney, be that a good thing or otherwise.
Anyone disagree with this? Am I being unfair to Palin? Has Gingrich actually got a chance?
