As you can see on the right corner of this page, my poll on who should be an Umno vice-president shows that Mukhriz has so far received five times more votes than his nearest rival incumbent DS Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
It may not be the best indicator of how the Umno delegates will vote for their vice-presidents in the party elections next month, but I think it roughly shows how much ordinary supporters of Umno, including the non-members like me would like the party to rejuvenate itself by electing Mukhriz.
Mukhriz had gave a glimpse of his vision in an interview with NST which was published on Malaysia Day.
I posted part of that interview here
An interview with Mukhriz
The interview was also published in full by the pro-Pakatan Malaysia Chronicles and the most interesting thing is how readers of the website, whom I believe are all Pakatan supporters reacted to what Mukhriz said in the interview.
I think the possibility of Mukhriz being a top Umno leader worries them quite a bit.
Here are among the comments of the Pakatan people about Mukhriz in the interview which headline was 'I am here to chart a new course'

A new course - golf course with many holes of wealth.
Cannot even grow hair on his head.

Wow. Inter course? Creating Another group of umno baru new billionaires?
Mr. Morgan, he will definitely chicken out!
Hi botak if u r true 2 Kedahan n urself y must u employ or use ppls fr Umno, only ppls fr yr party r better ? Ppls fr Umno r abusive,corrupt n arrogant.Honesty r earned not by giving comments, faham ke...
Five years under PAS rule , no improvement and messy . Then how about all this while under BN rule why only now you want to do something to improve Kedah. What about the shit mess you morons did to Selangor and Penang before the 2008 election. When you idiots talk about other peoples mess , why not also talk about your own Umno mess in Selangor . If you are a gentleman why not come out for an open debate with anyone of Pakatan leaders in-regards to the mess that you are talking about. Last but not least be prepared to also debate about the worst shit mess your father did during his tenure to our country.
Wah...with so much 'Daddykasi' to your Career...and an assured place into the scUMNO top hierarchy...some more want to 'chart' a new course for BN ah...? Sounds good, man but with so much $$$ you got...why don't you go for a brain-transplant first...? Equip yourself with one (maybe Jewish ) brain 1st...then, you can talk sense !!!
No doubt...your old man Kutty promised to give you the PM post...but he's getting senile and crankier that he may want the post for himself (knowing how stupid & useless you are...)...Methinks he already got himself some youngmen's blood transfusion to keep him going...!!!
Grow your hair first !

For whom, botak?
Yeah right! Your dad's main "course" was squandering RM100 billion. This is what the late Berry Wain said. And now you want to chat another new main "course" out of the peoples' money? Like father like son.
What kind of cowdung interview is this? Putting words into his mouth and putting cowdung into Pakatan Rakyat's mouth? You gave him the question in advance, he provided the answers unedited and you publish it without even editing? WTF!!!

The approach may differ that from old fart kutty mamak. his father but the final outcome is all the same . Anyone serious enough to believe him? No. I don`t . Not the slightest bit !

Mukhriz has this bad habit of leaving his sentences hanging in the air.
Let me complete his sentence for him, "I'm here to chart a new course BUT IT WILL BASED ON THE PROVEN METHODS OF MY DADDY BOY WHO JUST HAPPENS TO BE A TRANT !"
