This is a long speech. But this is the guy that conservatives from all over the spectrum have been looking for. He will win the nomination. And he will send Obama to the talk circuit. Not sure who will still want to listen to him, but no matter.

No prepared notes on this next one, but he answers up quickly, with clarity and certainty and a nice sense of humour.
Opponents in the primary and from the left in the general election will go after him in a myriad of ways. But he’ll be ready for it and he’ll come out the other end looking very good.
It really helps when you’ve got years worth of stats.
