Hotline Sort: Artur Davis, From Obama To Bush

3. Newt Gingrich's super PAC Winning Our Future will be getting another infusion of cash to the tune of $5 million, this time from the wife of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. The donation could offset the significant advantage Romney holds in fundraising; it helped Gingrich get his anti-Romney message out in South Carolina. 2. National Review's Rich Lowry makes a compelling case that Gingrich, in his political style, is an awful lot like another famous Democratic politician - Bill Clinton. Money quote: "Newt is the Republican Clinton -- shameless, needy, hopelessly egotistical. The two former adversaries and tentative partners have largely the same set of faults and talents. They are self-indulgent, prone to disregard rules inconvenient to them, and consumed by ambition. They are glib, knowledgeable, and imaginative. They are baby boomers who hadn't fully grown up even when they occupied two of the most powerful offices in the land." 1. A newly-aggressive Romney prosecuted his case against Gingrich at last night's NBC/National Journal/Tampa Bay Times debate, pointing to the former Speaker's "influence-peddling" at Freddie Mac in his post-Congressional career. National Journal's Ron Fournier wrote after the back-and-forth between the two frontrunners that Gingrich "looked more like a firefly than a firebrand." Gingrich entered Florida with clear momentum after a South Carolina victory, but Romney is betting that drawing strong contrasts (his executive background versus Gingrich's Washington insiderdom) and dropping millions in attack ads can change things fast. That's what happened in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses. Stay tuned to Florida polling towards the end of the week to see if Romney can overtake Gingrich.
