No one really knows who will be the Republican or Democrat Presidential nominee in two years. Well, maybe Hiro knows.
But I am going to make the following two predictions.
First, while he may not be the nominee, Newt Gingrich will define the issues and focus of the GOP campaign and has already begun to do so.
MANCHESTER, N.H. –Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday that First Amendment rights need to be expanded and cited the elimination of McCain-Feingold campaign finance reforms as one solution.
Gingrich, a Republican, suggested allowing people to give any amount to any candidate as long as the donation is reported online within 24 hours.
“Just as tax lawyers always succeed in out-thinking the (Internal Revenue Service) because they stay after five and the IRS goes home, the private-sector lawyers will always out-think the (Federal Election Commission) because they stay after five and the FEC goes home,” Gingrich told about 400 people at the Nackey Scripps Loeb First Amendment Awards Honors dinner.
“We are the only society to say power comes from God to you personally and you loan part to the state,” Gingrich said. “It doesn’t begin with the lawyers , with the bureaucrats… If there is no creator, where do your rights comes from?”
My personal preference at the moment is Rudy Giuliani, but I have my eye on Newt as I think he would make a fantastic American leader in a time of turmoil. A Rudy-Newt ticket would be even better.
My second prediction: Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats will choose Jonathon “The Impaler” Sharkey as their Presidential nominee.
But I am going to have a fun time following the vampire’s campaign!
