A Nation Turns Its Lonely Eyes to Newt


Newton "Newt" Gingrich, on his plans for 2008:

"I am not 'running' for president. I am seeking to create a movement to win the future by offering a series of solutions so compelling that if the American people say I have to be president, it will happen."

Ridiculous? Maybe.* But why can I imagine a national movement centered around Gingrichism more easily than I can imagine a push for Romneyism, Giulianism, Hillaryism, or even Obamagraphy?

*Apologies to Messr. Bill O'Reilly.
