    he thinks he has a chance at being elected anything, and he thinks his third wife (the one he cheated on his second wife with) will help him.

    :rofl:

    "As he prepares for a Republican presidential primary run — he said Monday that he would formally declare his intentions on Wednesday — Mr. Gingrich is presenting himself as a family man who has embraced Catholicism and found God, with his wife as a kind of character witness. Depending on one’s point of view, she is a reminder of his complicated past, or his secret political weapon."

    How delusional?

    Given Nixon's rep was rehabilitated by enough people that we flew the flag at half mast to honor his passing?

    I'd say not as delusional as good civil logic might incline us to hope.

    I like Newt. I think he is an intelligent man and he at least acts Presidential. However, due to his many skeletons in the closet, he would be better off seeking employment as a used car salesman.

    I don't think he's delusional.... I think he may see things differently... just as many other potential candidates do...

    I really don't have anything big against Newt.... but I also do not think he'd win

    Give him a break, his patriotism caused him to cheat on his wife. She told him if he slept with her she'd tell him where Osama was.

    Newt is in the business of being a political celebrity.

    Newt discovered that when he wrapped himself in the flag, the feel of the fabric against his naked skin made him horny.

    He told his first wife he was leaving her while she was in bed at the hospital with cancer.

    He is a horrible person who also backs completely failed ideas for America
