What power is in the Shire? Can't Post

Talking to Frodo at Rivendell (in "Many Meetings"), Gandalf says:

Quote
"Indeed there is a power in Rivendell to withstand the might of Mordor, for a while; and elsewhere other powers still dwell. There is power, too, of another kind in the Shire. But all such places will soon become islands under siege, if things go on as they are going."


What kind of power does the Shire have, do you think?
