Hugh is on to something here. The speaker has developed a strong bench and doesn't over shadow them, this is the opposite of Newt. Now what is needed is to put this advantage into play with a pivot from the current strategy of the GOP to argue numbers, numbers, numbers, to cross up the president. The president's strategy is to claim that the current system is not "fare", an emotional appeal lacking any connection to numbers. What the speaker can do is have one of his new young guns come out for wiping away the inheritance tax and wiping out the AMT tax. The argument here is simply is these taxes are not "fare".
