Newt Gingrich had affair while pursuing Bill Clinton
A little pre-emptive damage control, to tidy up his presidential bid launching pad? It's too late, he already struck out with me some time ago. I think the Contract With America was the best set of national policy initiatives in my generation--so much so that the Dems were reduced to hijacking elements of it from the flat-footed Republicans in the last several campaigns. But, while much of the public may may forgive triple dealing like this, none of them will forget it. Presidential candidates are held to much higher standards, and therefore Gingrich shouldn't run.
