    Agreed---2 people with great leadership skills and public speaking abilities. Common sense Americans.

    I don't think even having Giuliani on the ticket would guarantee NY would go red.

    It would be a nice pickup though.

    I'd like to see Newt as prez. Talk about in your face. The libs would go redeye crazy. But it would really shake out the conservative base and I think he is smart enough to bring on board more of the mods than Hillary. I think Guiliani would work as VP only if war was a hot topic at the time.

    Guiliani is a bit left leaning to work real well with Newt but he sure could drag in a few votes. Hillarys' past is so full of bones that the ones' that Newt has would pale in comparison.

    A Gingrich-Guiliani ticket will happen when hell freezes over. Gingrich has no credibility with the religious right - he's traded in two wives for younger models and slept with an employee while married and then left his wife for her. He's damaged goods, whether or not you think his personal life should matter. Giuliani is a liberal and I doubt if he would accept a VP nod.

    If this was the GOP ticket, I guarantee you a far-right splinter candidate would emerge, which would fatally divide the GOP and throw the election in landslide fashion to the Democrats.

    I doubt that Newt could be nominated for president, because despite his faults, the man loves science. He has a sincere interest in this taboo field. The Republican Party (and America in general) is so anti-science and anti-intellectual that when this tidbit comes out, he's sunk. Because he couldn't convincingly play dumb about stuff like global warming, stem cell research and the other vote getters. :whip: :2guns: :arabia:
