Gingrich says Palin will not be the future GOP leader By Alexander Bolton Posted: 11/16/08 01:05 PM [ET]
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) is batting down the hype that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin heads into 2012 as the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.
Palin energized the Republican base after GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) tapped her as his running mate and she has tried to preserve her high public profile since Election Day.
But Gingrich, an architect of the Republican revolution of 1994, took Palin down a notch, asserting that she would not become the partys leader, as some have predicted.
I think that she is going to be a significant player, said Gingrich during an interview on CBSs Face the Nation. But shes going to be one of 20 or 30 significant players. Shes not going to be the de facto leader.
Since the defeat of the GOP ticket, Palin has pursued an aggressive media strategy, scheduling a full slate of interviews to keep her face on television.

And Palin says Gingrich will not be future GOP leader
Yeah, Gov. Palin will be WHATEVER SHE WANTS!!!
Someone turned him into a newt...
No newts is good newts....
Well then, there is no hope for your RINO party!
What an extraordinarily misleading headline. Gingrich never said Palin would not be the future of the GOP, rather he said there are a number of rising stars and she is but one of them.
Anyone else sick of establishment Republicans telling us who or who will not be our leader? Sorry, we get to pick. Not Gingrich, not Whitman, not Perry. We the people. Capiche?
And time will tell.
Newt has seen his day. Time to pack it up and go home, Newt.
Sarah Palin — the Rachel Ray of the political set. She’s done.
Competition is good. 30 or so potential leaders that are truely conservative is a good thing. And I think that is what we are going to find we have.
I trust Palin. I don’t trust any of those other GOP snakes or any RINOs.
Newt is so yesterday, and I for one am not interested in his thoughts.. he should concentrate on his present wife..
Sarah, if a vote were held today against Newt would she would win by about 75 percent or more..
Palin will easily blow away the usual crowd of Republican suspect sadsacks in the primaries, and Newt and the boys better start getting used to the idea immediately. Comments like his, and those of various worthless unnamed staffers reveal why the party is in shreds. Wake up and smell the coffee, Newt.
Newt jumped the Global Warming shark. That is fatal. He will be good operating in the background, but not as a figure head.
I think it is for the voters to decide what she is in the next election. And so what on the agressive media approach, everyone has a book, everyone gets on late night TV and everyone does the Sunday morning talking heads rounds. It is what politicans do and people in the news do. Is Newt not getting enough interviews and becoming jealous? If anything, he should push her forward. You don’t see a rising woman outside of Hillary Clinton on the Democratic Party side and it is a weakness of the Democratic party that can be exploited that can be used for coalitions to win elections.
Jealousy is so unbecoming.
And Newt is Emeril
As poorly written as this article’s headline may be, we can tell that Newt is not the future of the GOP.
