I was (and still am) a proponent for an outer perimeter, but the longer this gets pushed aside, the more difficult it becomes to implement. Same for commuter rail and expansion of light and heavy rail. But it does need to get done.

So, would love to see someone like Sam Olens as the next governor, business minded, conservative, gets things done kind of guy, not a polemic type. Any indication that he is running? Have to depend on this site to keep up with things back home.

Sam Olens would be a good Republican governor to have.

So, Newt, won't be running for Governor but he is thinking about a presidential run in 2012.

Gingrich considers self among top 2012 prospects *| ajc.com (http://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/gingrich-considers-self-among-274633.html - broken link)

sigh--telling myself again ---you live in a nation with a '2 Party System'---you are going to have to accept this. What can the GOP be thinking---except of course---we want the Power???

I can barely absorb/process all the complexities of 'Governance'---pretty certain that Newt Gingrich will not become President. The man can write some interesting history books--particularly about Georgia--has even managed a humorous tale or two but --it is time for 'Others' to lead this nation.

just a thought and my political observations aren't worth the cyber paper on which they are posted....
