No Newt

So Newt Gingrich will not be running for president. I think this is the proper move. While he is one of the best ideas men in the Republican Party, and he did great work at the beginning of the mid-90's GOP Revolution, I think some of the things he's done in his personal life disqualify him from being the GOP nominee, in the eyes of me and many others. Plus, the fact that we have a pretty good crop of candidates right now makes his entry unnecessary.

Hopefully, a Republican wins the White House in '08 (like, say, Fred) and turns to Newt for policy ideas and the promotion of conservative ideas. That's the proper role for Newt as this point.

UPDATE: Is Newt waiting for 2012?
