Is he serious or just pandering to Palinistas? if you’re a Palinista, does this affect your willingness to support Gingrich? Would she do it? Remember, if Newt is the eventual nominee he’d have the very same GOP machine helping him as McCain. Would she go through that again as second fiddle? Should she?
Newt Gingrich tells a tele-townhall that Sarah Palin is someone to be considered for the vice presidency or energy secretary.
Caller: If you’re fortunate enough to be nominated, would you consider having Sarah Palin as your running mate?
Gingrich: She is certainly one of the people you would look at. I am a great admirer of hers, and she was a remarkable reform governor of Alaska. So, she’s somebody that I think brings a great deal to the possibility of helping in government, and that would be one of the possibilities. There are also some very important Cabinet positions that she could fill very, very well. I can’t imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example. So, tell her she certainly would be on the list of one of the people we would consider.
