I've tried to stay out of the 2008 Presidential race at this point -- there's way too much time and a lot can happen before the election. I couldn't skip this tidbit of news though -- a spokesperson for former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has announced that Newt will not run for the Presidency, despite a nation yearning for his leadership. (Bwahahahahahaha!) “It is legally impermissible for him to continue on as chairman of American Solutions (for Winning the Future) and to explore a campaign for president,” explained his spokesman. In other words, Gingrich is unwilling to give up his lucrative speaking gigs in order to run for President. Please, a moment of silence for the campaign that wasn't for Newt Gingrich - the man who led the Impeachment of Bill Clinton while he was having an extramarital affair at the time. While I personally hope Obama pulls the upset for the Democratic nomination, it almost would have been worth it to see Hillary win in order to face Gingrich. I'm thinking jello wrestling to the death. Yeah, I'd have paid to see that.
