    I think he has some of the smartest solutions I've heard yet but nobody has the qualifications to judge him, maybe determine his abilities. If you think he has a faulty decision making process then that's a factor but not his goodness or badness.

    Newt has the trifecta - multiple affairs, multiple ethic violations, and multiple incidence of double-crossing members of his own team. I just cannot consider this candidate a good person based on his record.

    Personally, I think the dude's a prick. He makes some good arguments sometimes, but that's because he's a prick. I think he's a war dodger as well. War dodging doesn't sit well with me. The guys on his 3rd marriage and his previous two ended because he cheated with the next wife. What the heck man? First, who is attracted to this guy? Second, who marries a guy that met them while he was married to another chick? Third, who is attracted to this guy, named NEWT? Who goes by Newt? Put all of these factors together and what do you have? A dork with money who doesn't like to get his hands dirty and uses the aforementioned money to get women out of his league. And yes, I've seen his second wife, she's hideous, and she's still out of Newts league (can't get over how dorky that name is). Imagine that. President Newt Gingrich. Might as well be President Dwight Shrute

    Yes, that is Newt beside Shrute.

    If Obama was a good person did it make him a good President?

    I'm not sure, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Let's have all the politicians who've never cheated on their wives stand up. What? Everybody left the room? It's unfortunate, but true. There is something about the power men feel when they are in politics that transfers to their johnson. He's probably no better or worse than any of the rest of them...except that he's older and, I really think he's seen the light.

    Personally, I wouldn't care if JR Ewing were running the country as long as he performed his duties well and was successful. I don't think we need the Pope right now but a shrewd, crafty old politician who's balanced the budget before.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

I was just really curious, because I haven't seen this question addressed seriously before, though I admit I haven't been on DP very much this election season.
    One question for you........Is it POSSIBLE to have a good administrator/leader who isn't an overall "good person" as you've put it? Just curious.
    Be careful now.......you might want to take a long look at history before you answer.
