Gingrich's Secretary Palin?

(CNN) – If Newt Gingrich wins the White House in November, the former House speaker said Wednesday Sarah Palin may get a big seat at the table.

"I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I'm president, but nothing has been discussed of any kind," Gingrich said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

    Interesting developments, Donald! :-)I heard both Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee rcneuneod their Presidential candidacies.Well, they are too old for the game anyway.Good that the NYPD got Strauss-Kahn by the way.He's a counterfeit Khazar Jew and now the French Socialist Party will self-destroy.There are previous similar fact evidences to Strauss-Kahn's behavior and incident in New York City.The leftwing politicians and their press is mad here.I think that is almost even more shocking than Strauss-Kahn's criminal conduct.But people are smarter than the leftwing politicians think.Now socialism is finished in France.Let's hope it will disappear all around the globe! :-)Have a fabulous day, Donald! 🙂

    It is always with a great deal of amusement that we foreigners can watch the American Presidential Fiasco and just when you think it can't get worse, it DOES. GOD, America, PLEASE DON'T give us NEWT (and NEWT & PALIN is inconcievable!!) We had BUSH –8 LOOOOOONG years, we have OBAMA 4 looooong years, please give us something that we can take! Gingrich is a loud, over the top hoodwinker. ALl we need is another 'great at debating and rhetoric' poor at delivering!

      If you think it's bad there, you should live here. Sometimes I wonder if Americans are actually voting or if some random number generator is picking the president.

    Palin was an illusion that made a lot of folks feel good while it lasted. But the last thing Newt needs, is to inject the vision of another 50 something whiz bang into his political life. Jesus Newt, don't you ever learn. Doug.

      Neut Gingrich is a man I would vote for/ Get all the facts and sort them out before putting him down. America needs Neut. We do not need another preety boy in the White House. All the people afraid of their Jobs in washington are putting a lot of rumors out. IF Neut is elected they are gone and I say good riddance.

    Omg. Lol......Palin as Secretary, we will be fighting everybody across the world. That's all leaders would be found is shaking their heads at how ignorant she is.

      Phil, she absolutely could not be worse than the Obama/Biden combo we have now. Seriously, 57 states? Sending the Queen of England an IPod full of your speeches? Continuing to speak through the national anthem of the country hosting you while *everyone* else recognizes the appropriate behavior is to stand quietly! Joe Biden, the 'we only let him out of the closet to show he's still alive' Vice President! Good God help us I'd trade Sara Palin for half of the communist cabinet we have now!

        Robert, fortunately for our country, most Americans wouldn't make that trade.

      She can't be that bad! Newt has an Open Marriage policy, so she will keep him company at the same time advancing the republicans family values image. I'm sure Calista is all for it, since he claimed she doesn't care what he does.

    There's NO way anyone, republican or democrat would elect Gingrich & Palin over Obama... Gingrich is using her to get those women vote's and Palin is using him so that she can stay relevant in today's politics... Listen, Palin is influenced by anything she thinks sounds smart... When you listen to her speak notice she sounds like shes reading a book... That's because she listens to other people and restates the "facts"... She and Gingrich both are unable to use critical thinking like Ron Paul... Gingrich and Palin are both irresponsible as a pair and would have us in another war... A perfect pair Gingrich with his resigning as speaker of the house to avoid felony bribery and covering up the Mark Foley scandal for 3 years to keep the republican majority and Palin who resigned her Govenorship half way through. What would they do with our country's Most important office? A book tour?

    RON PAUL 2012!!!

    "Throwing dust to the wind won 't work CNN. If Obama thinks he has stratagy at his beck and call, he has no idea what I have been doing. I have a whole data-base on Obama and he has no chance of being re elected."

    Perhaps Secretary of Alaskan Tourism? She could show tourists the view of Russia from her back porch. Of course that would require her to be stationed there permanently to keep her away from any kind of authority, thererby preventing any kind of disastrous decisions.

      Would Callista allow that? She might be jealous and untrusting of Gingrich.

    I think a Palin endorsement, especially in the general election will be the kiss of death. Whenever the name Sarah Palin is mentioned all I hear is snickering – Sooo, go ahead Sarah – keep it up – that will ensure my Candidate will win.
