GINGRICH: Lots of baggage.

  • GINGRICH: Lots of baggage.

I grant you his nomination risks election and the thought of a Newt Gingrich presidency is appalling.


But really. Could Gingrich survive presidential campaign inspection?

I’m not talking about serial philandering, dumping a cancer-stricken wife and other personal baggage. His non-lobbying, get-rich-quick work — more details today in New York Times — is a rich vein to mine.


Plus, his likability quotient, the record indicates, is low, including among his own party. However, ‘baggers apparently love him. Which tells you plenty.
