Contemplating a President Gingrich

January 24, 2012
Here's why Barack Obama really needs to nail his State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- and every other speech he delivers for the next 10 months. Because he may be going up against one of the Great Talkers of Our Time.

Almost anyone who's covered Newt Gingrich for any number of years -- I have since the '90s -- has found it difficult to imagine that the country is so pathologically bent out of shape that Newt could end up as president. Not when we can often hardly believe our ears at some of the things that come out of his often eloquent but just as often ungoverned mouth. Not when even some of his closest aides and GOP allies from the time of his speakership -- Dick Armey and Tom DeLay, among others -- have joined his ex-wife Marianne in suggesting that Newt doesn't have the character for the job, that he is too unstable and "volatile" (wasn't that Rick Santorum's term, he of the even-handed world view?).
