    For the longest time, well at least since the the election of President Obama I have heard nothing but this constant drone about how the GOP has no one to lead them or there are no qualified candidates to run for President. Having considered that statement for sometime now, you may be surprised at one of the people I find to be very compelling for high office.

What may surprise some of you who will automatically dislike him because if the name is that some of his political ideas are far from what you would call ultra-conservative. So to spur debate on the subject, here are a few interesting articles.
