    Will America and Israel Survive?
    By Newt Gingrich
    January 29, 2007

    Edward Teller, the father of the American hydrogen bomb, once asked me something that I have never forgotten: "How hard would you work for your family to survive after a nuclear war?" I said I would do anything. And he said, "Wouldn't it be better to do it before there's a nuclear war?"

    Wow, that was an amazing essay. Especially the last part:

    Civilizations can die. Cities can be destroyed. Katrina should have taught us that. In one day New Orleans was virtually destroyed and now we are rebuilding.

    People are slow to remember these lessons.

    Although Newt says he thinks he can do more by going around the country encouraging dialogue on important issues facing this country than running for president, I think by September of this year the Republicans will be ready to consider Newt as presidential material. Heaven knows, his "baggage" is less than that carried by the Clintons and it doesn't seem to damage them one bit.

    However his problematical relationship with his mistress while his wife was dying will be brought up as it relates to the attacks made on Clinton. Even though the impeachment was about perjoring himself there were many arguments made about the moral actions of the man in the office and those, rightly or wrongly, will rub off on Newt and the left will push hard to point out the "hypocrisy" of such.

    We'll see how it all washes out. Newt's kept his nose clean since his marital problems, and he's been a tireless worker for the Republican Party. I, myself, like his ideas. He makes good sense--at least to me.
