As J. Golden Kimball used to say, and I am paraphrasing, one becomes a leader in the church through revelation or relation. With that thought in mind, I wanted to open the speculation for the newest member of the 12 to be announced tomorrow morning. Some of the strong candidates that I can think of are:
Kim Clark - President of BYU-Idaho, and President of Harvard Business School. Good PR.
Cecil Samuelson - President of BYU-Provo
Marlin Jensen - Church Historian
Richard Hinckley - I believe he is a 70 and there's nothing like being related to a former President
Yoshihiko Kikuchi - Potential first Apostle from Asia
Carlos Asay - or some other 70 from Latin America
Frank Vinceguerra - hymn passer-outer, home teacher and first to testify every fast Sunday in Concord, NH ward
I think that there is another Oaks in there too but I am not sure on his chances. Any other guesses?
