Just wondering what sites fellow Huckabites visit when checking up on other possible candidates for 2012.
I use read news on Jindal, but I don't believe he is angling for 2012 so I ceased following specific news on him. I used to follow Sanford also, but not sure anything going there.
That said, the main three I think will run (besides Governor Huckabee of course) are Palin, Romney and Gingrich.
The main Palin sites I review (probably weekly) are:
http://www.conservatives4palin.com/ (this is one is very active and ferocious)
http://planetromney.org (there are several Romney blogs, but this site lumps them all together, makes it quite easy.)
http://committedtoromney.com (this is also included in Planet Romney, but I visit it sometimes to read what they are saying in chat room.
I haven't found any good sites on Gingrich. Any ideas?
General 2012 discussion:
http://race42012.com (This site is a very good source for different perspective and conservative news, though there is much I don't agree with. It is interesting in that the bloggers are from all facets of the GOP though lite on the Huckabee and Romney front page bloggers. Unfortunately a vast majority of the commentors are Mitt supporters so I typically avoid the comments to maintain my mood. Still I like the site as a good debate forum. I just wish it had some more Huckabee influence.)
http://smartgirlpolitics.ning.com/ (Very good also, but obviously leans Palin).
What sites do all of you visit?

I'm not necessarily looking for candidates for 2012 at this point. I'm a big Huck fan and supporter, but I also like Newt. I'm actually waiting to see who's going to emerge as a genuine leader on the national stage.
These are the sites I follow most often for news and information:
I regularly listen to podcasts of the Savage Nation, Glenn Beck, Dennis Prager & Mike Gallagher, & Hugh Hewitt. And I catch a little bit of Hannity, Rush, Ingraham, Liddy, Humphries and a few others from time to time live or via podcast.
I think one problem with conservatives is we have plenty of radio talk show personalities who speak to our concerns and who in the minds of many, are the leaders of the movement, but they have little influence outside of their audience, and no power to speak of in Washington, so they cannot really oppose the Democrats who have power in Washington, in the MSM, in our educational institutions, and in the culture in general. The "leaders of the opposition" are only pseudo-leaders in that sense, because they aren't actually in the arenas that shape opinions and make policies, or get things done. We don't have many truly conservative politicians who actually represent us, and are in fact leading and influencing the political landscape.
