Republicans' lack of leaders

Justin Webb | 07:45 UK time, Thursday, 25 June 2009

Mark Sanford let me down too. I was hoping a day spent with him recently in the rural idyll that is South Carolina might have been an investment in a relationship with a
future GOP presidential candidate.

Now the day comes down to a visit to a gun shop (we've run out of ammo since Obama took over!) and a nice lunch in Beaufort. But as ever we should overlook individual disappointment to survey the bigger picture: the Republicans have a catastrophic lack of young able leaders who can take on Obama in 2012 as noted here and here.

I hereby challenge someone to come up with a serious name for 2012. First person to post the correct result gets a prize (in 2012). Tempted to offer a free holiday to Argentina but it might have to be something less tangible; respect perhaps.
