If I wanted compromise, I'd go with Romney or even Santorum. I'm sticking with Newt because I want a proven Reagan conservative who is also brilliant, knows the facts, can articulate them, and will stand up to the rest. I've said all along Santorum would suffice as a vp or a cabinet member, but he is not ready for prime time. He can't beat Obama, he's too weak, and everybody knows it.
Still cannot figure what Newt plans to run on since he’s already surrendered each and every issue that would draw stark contrasts between himself and Obamba.
If what you are looking for is nothing more than a BIG TENT (moderate)republican, Newt’s your guy. McLame’s 2008 defeat proved that it’s not a winning position.
