Reagan was always at the center of the media machine and the national news, and image makers. Enjoy this 2010 election, largely the work of the national efforts, of Governor Sarah Palin. One thing is for sure and that is Palin has done fine over her 18 years in politics, her effect of leading the conservative movement this last 2 years since she went national has been phenomenal and unprecedented as was her record as governor. Palin Top Political Talent Since Reagan, Expert Angelo Codevilla Says Sarah Palin commands a political ability unrivaled since President Ronald Reagan, says an international expert who believes that the dream Republican presidential candidate for 2012 would be a combination of Palin and Newt Gingrich. Of course, thats impossible, but one can only wish, Angelo Codevilla tells Newsmax.TV. Sarah Palin is a political talent we havent seen since Ronald Reagan, says Codevilla, who has been on the staff of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and is a professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University. Meanwhile, Gingrichs strength is that the former House speaker is a brilliant and good man, says Codevilla, author of the new book The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It. Americans are divided into the ruling class and the country class old English terms meaning the haves and the have-nots, the professor says. Palin belongs firmly to the country class, he says.
