Gingrich: B. It's a lot easier to criticize your party when your political career is over. Even so, it's good to have a major figure like Gingrich tell the GOP to acknowledge its mistakes and get its act together.And the hosts:
Russert: B. If you attack your own party, Russert will take it easy on you. In other words, Gingrich was filling in for John McCain.Hasta la vista, baby. (6) opinions -- Add your opinion
I've always believed that Joe Biden could be an A- or A if he were out of politics. He's got a good mind for foreign policy, but he's a political whore, just like everyone else in Washington.
If you're familiar with Les Miserables, you know that the most downtrodden of whores often have hearts of gold.
No, Biden would do worse out of politics; the need to be re-elected forces him to hide the "I think I have a higher IQ than you do" Biden.
"It's a lot easier to criticize your party when your political career is over."
It's unclear from this whether you've noticed that Gingrich is running, hard, for President.
Actually, I think Gingrich is running for the bestseller list. He tempts the talking heads with talk of a presidential run, so they will invite him on their shows where he can plug his book (or even better, have them plug it for him).
Um, I've actually copyedited one of Gingrich's books, and known one of his publishers well, very well (we're talking a not large outfit), and I've been in the room with Newt not making a speech, and had other acquaintanceship with his correspondence,Post a Comment
and there are things I can't say, but I'm saying he's running for President.
I'm not commenting on the realism of it. But I'm saying he's very serious.
Believe me or not.
