Newt Out

After months of flirting with a possible candidacy, Newt Gingrich has decided not to seek the White House in ‘08. Can’t say this is much of a surprise. Gingrich is a very smart man, so he is probably well aware of what a long shot he would be. His enormous baggage and his demonization by the media and his opponents would have pretty much sunk him from the get-go, and Fred Thompson’s entry in the race further undermines his rationale (the “conservative void,” more or less, has been filled).
