Could *We* Ever Serve the Kool Aid?

I'll keep the writer of this email anonymous because I thought it was an interesting question and I don't want the question to get sidetracked by the views of the questioner...

Regarding the Cult of Obama:

"I do think Republicans would act somewhat the same way if they were presented with the right candidate. Is there anybody out there you see as having that kind of potential?"

My first response was a flat out 'No!' (We on the right tend to let our leaders' decisions play out before we lionize them...), but we could explore that. Is there ANYONE that could inspire this much excitement for us? Someone you wish you could recommend if you had a pipeline to the GOP?

Maybe if Michael Reagan was a biological son...?
