About: Although it’s difficult to endorse a conservative Republican in this era of absurd right-wing politics, CNN political contributor Amy Holmes offers enough of a reasonable balance to her conservative platform.

During the 2008 presidential primary with senators, Barack Obama and John McCain, the former assistant to Ariana Huffington delivered her unique analysis on the racially charged election. Although she is a registered Independent, nine times out of ten Holmes is on the right side of the things. She is not only an quick-witted voice for the GOP, but, during the elections, she was also the best translator of Sarah Palin’s podium wink fests that often left many with an arched eyebrow of confusion.
