    More background information.

    Newt Gingrich Biography - Biography.com

    Gingrich was seen as the architect of the victory, especially noted for helping draft the “Contract with America,” a document outlining legislation to be enacted by the House within the first 100 days of the 104th Congress. Among the proposals were tax cuts, a permanent line-item veto, and a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget. In December 1994 Gingrich was chosen by the majority Republicans as House speaker, and he assumed the office the following month. With one exception, all parts of the “Contract with America” were passed by the House.
    Judging by everything I've read thus far, I would think logically Cain/Gingrich is the order they should run.

    Bozo the Clown could say he is running and cons would declare Obama finished by landslide.

    And dems would bite.

    Don't worry, Limbaugh said that's easily defeated. That makes it fact.

    Seriously? Newt is a hypocrite lizard and doesn't stand a rat's ass chance. He'll be out before New Hampshire.

    Re: Newt Gingrich to launch presidential bid Wednesday

    I'm not sold on anybody yet...but one thing I will say...Obama seems to be getting more snippy, more short, a little more caustic when he's speaking with reporters/donors/during speeches. It seems (to me, anyway) that maybe he's getting a little stressed, tired of the job/responsibility.

    He'll need to go back to his motivational-speaker quality if he wants to win. When he's "frank" he almost comes off like a d*ck. I don't think that will serve him well during the campaign cycle.

    And what is Obama? Besides the most unqualified person to ever occupy the seat?

    I've said for a while, I don't think Newt would make a good Presidential nominee but I could see him being an excellent person to draft for the VP slot. Specifically if someone like Mitt wins the nomination who is thought of as a more "moderate" candidate and could use a VP to entice the base.

    No one is going to want to touch Newt with the baggage that he has. This would be like John Edwards trying to run for President, but worse. It's never going to happen
