Former House Leaders Say the Current Group Has It Rough

* FILE ** House Speaker Newt Gingrich, right, and House Majority Leader Dick Armey, meet reporters on Capitol Hill in this Wednesday, Sept. 9, 1998, file photo, in Washington.  Instead of a birthday cake for the Contract with America's 10th anniversary, Republicans at their 2004 national convention in New York  have given it a cold shoulder. The cavalcade of speakers addressing this week's GOP gathering has not mentioned the campaign manifesto House Republicans used in 1994 to end 40 years as the chamber's minority party.
