I say he’s earned the chance to lead. He’s kept the GOP caucus together when it would have been very easy for members to want to get on the O train. Now, just because he was good at opposition, doesn’t mean he’ll be a good leader, but he deserves the chance.
I agree, but there can be NO sign of squish or weakness. I want to see visible conservatism, and for gawd’s sake, don’t ever use the words “compromise”, “reach across” or “our friends across the aisle” or I swear, John, I will mail you what comes out of my mouth.
