Gingrich likes Palin as Secretary of Energy


Think Progress:

.... during a Wednesday night tele-town hall hosted by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition, a caller asked the former Speaker if he would consider Palin as a running mate. Gingrich responded that Palin “is certainly one of the people you would look at” and told the caller that he is “a great admirer of hers.”

He also floated the idea of appointing her Secretary of Energy because, he said, “I can’t imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin.”

Gingrich and Palin have been awfully chummy since she announced she wouldn't run for president, and it led some (including me) to believe that she might endorse him.

But she doesn't seem interested in endorsing before Iowa (four days away) and, possibly, not at all.
