Or if we go back a little, LBJ, JFK, and even FDR ? To my knowledge, only Carter and Truman get a pass on the Dem side.
I applaud you for being in a good marriage. Unfortunately, half of all do not work out, and a large portion of those had adultery, as do many that do not dissolve. If adultery is the disqualifier, we are more "screwed" than we already think we are
Report: 100 Tea Party Members to Back Newt - West Ashley, SC Patch ) which is definitely something a Romney Presidential run would need, along with the fact that he would do well against Biden in VP debates. If Romney were to pick a Sarah Palin or a governor with little to no foreign policy experience it would show during the debate. In general I think it's a bad idea for a governor to pick a governor as a VP just because you don't get the variety. You get more foreign policy and you have to deal with grand scheme domestic policy issues more in the senate and garner executive experience as governor. It's one of the reasons I didn't like Biden as Obama's pick, though that wasn't as terrible of a decision since Obama needed someone with lots of experience and Biden provided him with that (though I wouldn't have picked him just on the basis of him being so gaffe prone in the first place.)

Again, I'm not saying Gingrich will be the pick, especially after this interview I find it nearly impossible for him to get the VP slot, but beforehand I could definitely see it happen.
Edit: Gingrich is good in debates, but hardly unbeatable. He can throw out that red meat to his base but some of the time he comes accross as nothing more than an arrogant asshole. At least though, he has enough knowledge of the world to not look completely silly such as a Palin or a Herman Cain etc. and can make some strong arguments when he's not interested in just slapping his chest.

Back to the primary thread topic. ABC is hyping this for all its worth. You can see online clips now, to include a very bitter ex-wife trying with all her might to bash Newt. Wonder how much she was paid. Or tried to extort in lieu of doing this.
And if Newt is as good as some of us think he is, he can hit a grand slam with this as well.
While he needs to once again affirm his foibles, and his redemption, he can then capitalize on the uber-hypocritical liberal MSM. This is all old news, being reborn by ABC solely to trash Newt. But where was the MSM on Edwards ? Heck, teh National Enquirer only got the scoop as the MSM would not go there against a liberal. Or Jennifer Flowers during the Clinton campagn ? Again, it was the Enquirer because the MSM would not touch it.
Lesser orators might be in deep doodoo on this. Americans are growing sick of the liberal double standard with the press. And Newt is the guy to drive a Mack Truck through that mess. But Gingrich can turn it into another standing O if he is on key
He usually is.
