    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.

    Well, besides repeating a lot of falsehoods about Gingrich's personal life, so what?

    Personally, I still think this will come down to Perry and Romney, because they have the money and organization.

    So what? That's a man's perspective. I saw the same thing just now on Morning Joe. Leaving your wife for a much younger women is the fear of many, many women. Especially for those on the conservative side who are supposed to be "taken care of" and "subservient" by and to their husbands. Newt has moved on to a much younger women, "twice". And in a callous and awful manner. Conservative men see nothing wrong. It's a non issue. Many may even admire him for doing what they wish they could do. For conservative women, it's a whole other ball game. They not only don't like it. It scares them.

    As a liberal man (which is really, an oxymoron, when you think about it), I think you are the last person to speak to what "conservative women" feel.

    The thing is, both of Gingrich's divorces were mutually agreed upon. He didn't serve anyone with divorce papers in a cancer ward. Even his own daughter has refuted that claim.

    Sometimes, marriages just don't work, and it's best for all involved if they end. Some people just shouldn't get married at all.

    No one is planning to marry Gingrich, we just want him to fix what Obamasky has messed up.
