Labrador Among GOP 'Leading Lights'?

An article this morning on the Salon website, 10 Reasons Republicans Think Their Party's Dysfunctional, includes Idaho GOP Congressman Raul Labrador's Sunday appearance on NBC's Meet the Press. The article features what Salon calls "some of the Republican Party's leading lights" giving their reasons why the "party failed so miserably" in the Nov. 6 election. Author Adele Stain wrote that Labrador displayed "his neo-libertarian streak" at the Nov. 18 Meet the Press roundtable, suggesting "that the party's problem is that it just talks the small-government, no-handout game, but when it comes to corporations, government and subsidies rule"/George Prentice, Boise Weekly.

Question: Is it possible that Raul Labrador could become a national voice of conservatism a la Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann or Marco Rubio?
