Endorsement

Romney: Palin Would Be 'Great' President

Is this the first of many GOP endorsements for Sarah Palin, or a case of “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”? Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney said he knows one “great” choice: Sarah Palin. Romney, in an interview on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Tuesday, called Palin “an extraordinarily powerful and effective voice in our party” and said the former Alaska governor would “be great in a primary process.” Romney, on a media blitz for his new book No Apologies: The Case for American Greatness, told David Letterman that he is "keeping the door open" about running himself. There's one person in Romney's camp already: He said his wife is “convinced” he’s “got to run.” According to a recent Rasmussen survey, Romney leads nationally among the potential GOP nominees that include Palin, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
