Newt Gingrich is being touted as the "elder statesmen". A man with decades of political experience who once before challenged a popular Democratic president. A man who understands the way government works. A man who knows how to talk to a wacky base. A man who, even though he has a gay sister, is anti gay rights (probably a plus for most Republicans). A man who has clear positions on foreign policy. Newt Gingrich is unelectable. But not for the following reasons: 84 charges of ethics violations. Having an affair and going after Clinton for the same thing at the same time. His anti poor stance. His anti education stance. None of these matter. The single thing is the fact that twice, he left his wife for a much younger women. For many women in the Republican Party, this is terrifying. When his first wife was hit with divorce papers, she said it came as a "complete surprise". This poor women was blindsided. She was, by all accounts, a good women and a good mother. And then she was just "cast aside". The second wife was in the hospital when she was served with divorce papers. In both cases, he married some kind of secretary. This would become a campaign issues and Republican women won't accept it. You can bet your Confederate Flag on it.
