    I agree,that constant smile seems forced. And his stand on the RKBA leaves much to be desired.

    IMO,he will not be the nominee.

    Rick Santorum ,Senator from Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2007 is our next contender.Santorum is a fiscal conservative,pro life and a very strong RKBA advocate.

    The former Senator was considered one of the 4 or 5 most conservative voices in the chamber during his two terms.
    There is no doubt he wants to be President and he is already testing the waters in Iowa,New Hampshire and South Carolina.

    It will be a difficult road, but stranger things have happened as we've seen with Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.

    Here is his record from On the Issues.

    After he got whooped in the Pennsylvania Senate race, I find it difficult to take him seriously as a national candidate. I see him keeping his face in the public hoping for a cabinet-type job if the Republicans win.

    He reminds me a little of that kid that used to get beat up after school a couple times a week for acting prissy. That's just a personal thing, he might be a good guy but he just doesn't strike me right.

    Our penultimate contender is John Thune,the junior Senator from South Dakota since 2005.The telegenic Thune is very much the conservative with a 100% rating from the American Conservative Union.

    Strong on gun rights he's one of the rare U.S.Senators or House Reps to get an A+ from both the NRA and GOA.

    Thune has made it clear he'd like to be President.Not well known nationally it would be an uphill climb.His small state status is not a plus.

    The Senator got 2 votes in our poll,from sdprof and myself.IMO,there is a lot to like in Thune,but to have a chance he has to start moving rapidly.Its a long shot.

    On the Issues take:

    I'd like to bump this once to invite "write ins" -- folks who might not be declared that y'all would like to "draft" as good candidates. Most of the good people in politics didn't start out to be there.

    That sounds like a good idea.

    Our final poll list contender is Newt Gingrich,former Georgia Congressman and at one time in the '90's, one of the most powerful men in the country,The architect of 1994 GOP takeover of the House, for the first time after 40 long years in the wilderness.

    Newt is not bashful about letting everyone know he'd like to get into the WH.Quite intellectual,he has many pluses and more than enough minuses.

    Also a prolific author,fiction and non-fiction, he grinds out one or two bestselling books every year.
    He's spending more time in Iowa,New Hampshire and South Carolina than probably any other contender.

    Our final On the Issues for now:

    Our poll is closed and Ron Paul was the winner 24 to 21 over Sarah Palin.

    I'm sure many here wish that Paul was 10 years younger.What a difference that probably would make in the coming dialogue for the 2012 nomination.
    The political landscape has changed much in the last ten years.
    Today the younger Paul would probably have made a good run.

    Thank you all for the votes and comments over the last month.It was fun.

    Don't count Ron out just because of his age. He can hold his own in a verbal scrap with any of those other whippersnappers.
