Newt's Vision Thing
By David S. Broder
In the years since I first met him in 1974, I have learned that it's wise to take Newt Gingrich seriously. He has many character flaws, and his language is often exaggerated and imprudent. But if there is any politician of the current generation who has earned the label "visionary," it is probably the Georgia Republican and former speaker of the House.Yes, those are gaging sounds you hear! Newt a visionary? It just gets worse and I can't bring myself to even copy and paste anymore.
For that reason alone, it is regrettable that Gingrich has virtually decided to pass on the 2008 presidential race.
Please Mr Broder - please retire. Don't you have some nice cabin you could go to and fix those cocktail party weenies yourself?
