Newsy: VA Gov. Bob McDonnell is a better GOP option than Sarah Palin

McDonnell is an excellent speaker, but his credentials as a pragmatist remain to be seen. He was a graduate of a Christian school and his thesis would not have been acceptable in a mainstream university because of the value judgements it contained.

He is governing a state that has a $5 billion deficit. McDonnel's speech was high on abstraction and low on concrete details.

Republicans have talked about limited government before but they have always expanded the federal government and deficit when elected.

McDonnel has only been in office a couple of months. Time will tell whether he has the right stuff. He appears to be a better option for the GOP than Sarah Palin.
