Skip to comments.Gingrich sees Sarah Palin as vice president, Cabinet secretary

Newt Gingrich said that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin would be among the candidates that he would consider when considering a potential running mate, adding that the former GOP vice presidential nominee would be an ideal candidate for secretary of Energy.
Gingrich, speaking Wednesday during a conference call with conservative voters hosted by Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition, was asked by one of the attendees whether he would consider Palin as a running mate.
"She is certainly one of the people you would look at. I am a great admirer of hers and she was a remarkable reform governor of Alaska, shes somebody who I think brings a great deal to the possibility of helping in government and that would be one of the possibilities," Gingrich said, according to Right Wing Watch.
He went on to suggest that Palin might be ideal for a position in his Cabinet.
"There are also some very important Cabinet positions that she could fill very, very well," Gingrich said. "I cant imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example. Tell her that she would certainly be on the list of one of the people we would consider."
Palin had toyed for months with running for the presidency before ultimately announcing late this summer to stay out of the GOP race.

The cynic in me says that he is just pandering to her supporters and former supporters.
>> he is just pandering
Newt is responding to the question in a reasonable way.
Gee, ya think so? He’s sinking in the polls and, lo and behold, he suddenly decides Sarah would be perfect for his VP or SOS
Sounds like Obama... say anything but doing nothing.
Who is your energy secretary now......(without cheating)
I can guarantee her name would shake up the moonbat MSM.
Thomas Sowell supports Newt. I admire Sowell tremendously.
I’d pick any drunken bum out of an alley and vote for him before voting for Bathhouse Barry.
A pathetic slide into oblivion.
Makes Romney look like the Rock of Gibraltar!
Still think she would make a great RNC chairperson.
Anyone who prefers Willard over Newt is a liberal aka Massachusetts Moderate or just plain ignorant.
I know that things were pretty lousy for me financially during the first few years of the Clinton regime. It was the same sad story with all of my colleagues and friends.
But when Newt and the Conservatives swept into power back in the mid-90's, the turnaround was remarkable. Business conditions improved almost overnight and a wave of optimism and confidence was palpable. I know for certain that our company's sales increased mightily and it was reflected in a nice, fat paycheck. I also recall the days of the Gingrich ascendancy when gas was down to 77 cents here in North Texas.
So I'm obviously enthusiastic about a repeat performance of the Good Times with Gingrich when he again takes a leadership slot, this time as President in just a bit more than a year from now.
Go Newt Go! Claim a big win next week in Iowa! Rebellion is brewing! FUBO! FUJB! FUMR! FURP!
Newt haters are jack offs... you know what a jack off is don’t you?
“Gee, ya think so? Hes sinking in the polls and, lo and behold, he suddenly decides Sarah would be perfect for his VP or SOS”
I think some people in this post lack reading comprehension skills. Newt was merely responding to a question asked of him in an honest manor. I like how he handled the question.
I’m not committed to any candidate, and there are several no-way-in-hell choices. As for Gingrich/Santorum/Perry, they are all about the same to me, with their own unique pluses and minuses. A lot of minuses! But, if one of them joined forces with Palin as veep, yes, that would be enough for me to go all-in, and support them, with time and money. It would finally break the log-jam for me. (not that I particularly expect to see this scenario).
