ALASKAN GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN: Of course, we have all been watching her through out the election cycle. She is smart, straight forward and unafraid, unintimidated by the press and the Washington Insiders. She is the epitome of what Conservative Women have been waiting for in a pollitical leader.
Former MD LT Gov MICHAEL STEELE: VERY ACOMPLISHED AND IMPRESSIVE.He obtained his undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins and his JD at Georgetown University. Steele considered the priesthood and spent three years in seminary, but decided on a career in law before taking the vows.
LA Gov BOBBY JINDAL: EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT Jindal attended Brown University, graduating with honors in biology and public policy. Although he had thought of a career in medicine or law and was accepted by Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School, he chose to pursue a political career. He received a master's degree in political science from New College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar.
I heard Michael Steele this morning on FOX NEWS, I like what I am hearing from him. He said that Republicans do not have to become more like the Democrats to regain the trust of the Conservatives - they have to "get their act together and get back to the values, roots and principals of the Republican Party." He said that those that think they should move to the left are welcome to join the Democratic Party.
Political websites are helpful; www.ontheissues.org has been rather good; they do lean slightly to the left, but it is very slight and not really noticable unless you really scrutinize the site. According to ontheissues.org Palin and Jindal are historically more conservative than Steele. Steele is rated more moderate, right leaning. All three up and comings are pro-life and have a track record that supports their verbiage.
Really - only time will tell if they are as great as they seem. Let's hope they live up to the hype.
