From “The Fix”: One author’s analysis of the GOP bench
Posted by Liberty on November 21, 2008
In the spirit of GOP renewal, here’s Chris Cillizza’s top picks. There are names any avid politico will will recognize like Lousiana governor Bobby Jindal and former presidential candidate & Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney but Cillizza has also included a couple of lesser known’s like Steve Poizner and John Huntsman Jr. I’m encouraged by a couple of these choices and I highly recommend taking a look at Mr. Cillizza’s list. I’ll leave you with one quote from Mister #6, Mark Sanford, South Carolina governor and newly elected chair of the Republican Governor’s Association.
“Some on the left will say our electoral losses are a repudiation of our principles of lower taxes, smaller government and individual liberty,” wrote Sanford in an op-ed piece for CNN.com. “But Tuesday was not in fact a rejection of those principles — it was a rejection of Republicans’ failure to live up to those principles.”
This next generation of Republicans just might get it!
