    Slate magazine did an article on the 10 Republicans That will Define 2011.

    1. Rick Scott --Governor of Florida
    2. Kelly Ayotte -- U.S. senator from New Hampshire
    3. Kris Kobach -- Kansas secretary of State
    4. Amy Kremer -- chairwoman of the Tea Party Express
    5. Allen West -- U.S. representative from Florida
    6. John Kasich-- governor of Ohio
    7. Adam Kinzinger--U.S. representative from Illinois
    8. Ken Cuccinelli--attorney general of Virginia
    9. Ron Johnson -- U.S. senator from Wisconsin
    10. Michael Williams-- Texas railroad commissioner


    What I find interesting about this list is that there are two black male republicans, Michael Williams and Allen West, on this list. They also make mention of Tim Scott from South Carolina It is telling that black Republicans are coming out of the woodwork.

    I do think that Adam Kinzinger is easy on the eyes.

    John Kasich isn't worth cold dog vomit. I have Krazy Kristian coworkers who voted for him, yet have come to loathe him...and he's not even officially taken office! It's a joke.

    We are going through massive cuts and job losses at the university - you know, decent paying jobs that contribute to the tax revenue of the economically depressed state and the economic well being of the region - and state officials are already telling us 2012 will be a bloodbath because of Kasich's stated plans (along with his Republican controlled state legislature) to slash taxes.

    I guess he plans to attract "industry" and "jobs" to the state by turning us into a large pool of minimum wage workers.

    This is the kind of stuff I wanted here. I love that they gave these gentlemen and ladies glowing reviews, but what is it really like living in the state that these people represent.

    Kris Koback from my state is pretty hot - but he is crazy as a loon. He is a law professor is Kansas City when he's out of office (which is about every other election). He wrote the anti-immagration law that passed in Arizona - YUCK!

    UpperCanadian saidThis is interesting to hear abou the up and comers - the people who might actually stand a chance of taking on Obama as the GOP candidate in 2012.

    It is becoming less likely that Palin will stop milking the cash cow in favour of making a run for it.


    The article talked about these Republicans not running for presidency.

    We are going through massive cuts and job losses at the university.

    Is it a private university or a state / county university?

    That may be a relevant point for financial matters.
    However, A.G. Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia (as well Gov. McDonnell) is bullying the universities on social issues, in particular, advising them not to hold any policies banning discrimination based on sexual orientation. http://www.roanoke.com/news/nrv/breaking/wb/238837 He also is fighting UVA for publishing climate change reports he personally disagrees with.

    I have an understanding when it comes to protecting the state's fiscal responsibilities. But this douche seems to be focusing on quickly pushing the religious right's agenda as fast as possible.

    I like this list and hope that some will come forward in bringing in new ideas that concentrate on what's good for their constituents and not themselves. I like Brown a lot and could definitely see him lined up to be a potential VP in the 2012 elections.

    I could also put Bachman on this list since she is the head of the Tea Party Caucus. While I disagree with some of the tea party stance she promises to be stringent in trying to reduce spending and the deficit.

    I know what you're talking about! I know a lot of people who regret voting for Kasich before even taking office, mostly because he is killing the passenger rail system, and some cuts in education. I applaud the Democrats for doing one heck of a job, sure the economy hasn't been fixed as quickly as a lot of people wanted it, but there is no magic wand to fix it. They did the steps needed to get the economy back, and there are signs the economy is heading in the right direction. I just hope the Republicans don't take credit for it.

    I agree, he scares me with what he's done in only one year.
