I do not think he is a "good" man, depending, of course,on a man's definition of "good".
But then, he is supposedly a "conservative", so being "good" is difficult.
An appropiate question, "has Newt the temperment to be President?"
Does any teabagger/conservative ??
I think that very, very very few politicians are actually good people.
The only person currently running for, or occupying the office of, Prez, who qualifies as a "good person" is Ron Paul.... and I disagree with him a lot of things, but at least he's honest.
People who want to run things are rarely good people.

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
As far as Ron Paul, I believe the whole "racist newsletter issue", and denial regarding said newsletters, is his dishonesty showing through.
