    Question GOP's potential savior: Gary 'Lt. Dan' Sinise

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Nicolle Wallace, a top adviser to George W. Bush and John McCain’s presidential campaign, is adding a few names to the list of Republicans who might lead the GOP out of the wilderness.
    Top among them? Actor Gary Sinise.
    Wallace, writing on The Daily Beast, said she first heard the idea from a fellow Republican.
    “The natural strengths that an actor brings to politics would come in handy to anyone going up against Obama in 2012,” she wrote. “We will need an effective communicator who can stand toe to toe with Obama’s eloquence.”
    Sinise, also a musician, performs for U.S. troops and often champions veterans' causes.
    She also named Generals David Petraeus and Ray Odierno as possible Republican saviors.
    “Both have denied any interest in a run for office,” she wrote, “but if their masterful management of Iraq is undermined in any way over the next four years, one could hope that they’d reconsider.”
    She said that according to most Republicans she has spoken with, a Republican resurgence would demand a new leader, “as opposed to any one of the politicians on the national stage today rising to the occasion.”
    Wallace floated the names because she said there’s only so much soul-searching the Republican party can do without the next great leader, someone like President Obama “who matches the moment and transcends the narrow debates about ideology” while moving the political discourse “away from the past.”
    She said the ongoing argument about whether the GOP needs to become more moderate or re-assert its conservative principles is a “media-generated debate” and “a false choice that offers nothing but continued

    I guess the GOP thinks another actor will be the second coming of Reagan.

    They're really pulling things out of their ass now, aren't they? I guess CSI NY is ending soon and Lt. Dan needs a job.

    This is just plain old desperation on the side of the Republicans, who are holding on to ideas like Hugh Hefner holds on to concubines.

    They don't say anything about his particular stances, just that he's an actor. Good way to select a quality leader!

    If Hollywood is so liberal, then how come there are so many Republican actors turned politicans?

    Well one thing they could do straight away is distance themselves from people like Rush Limbaugh other extremists. I believe Colin Powell even said as much and they could do well to listen to him. Their credibility is seriously spiraling into the crapper. You know you're in trouble when the idea of a freaking TV actor (even a well-liked one) to save your image has actually become plausible. Gary Sinese certainly couldn't hurt at this point. I actually like him and he's about the only reason I watch that show (other than Eddie Cahill of course).

    Isnt it funny that Republicans love an actor that supports the party yet hates actors who are on the other end of the spectrum and states they should have no say in politics.
