I was watching the Republican Presidential Debate last night and very much enjoyed this simple question:

“Without caveats or explanation, please define yourself using one word, and one word only.”

I thought each of the candidates did a very nice job with the question – picking a word that would address what they wanted the voters to remember about them. The best answer, however, went to Newt Gingrich for his answer “cheerful” which was delivered masterfully and got a big laugh from the crowd as it went counter to the current meme about Newt that he is too angry to be elected.

So what’s my answer?
