Newt for president?
Newt Gingrich, the Republican former Speaker of the House, didn't rule it out last night in Ashland, before he was to address a packed house of 650-plus at Randolph-Macon College.
Gingrich and his wife, Callista, "will look seriously and we'll probably get our family totally engaged, including our two grandchildren, probably in January, 2011, and we'll look seriously at whether or not we think it's necessary to do it," he told reporters during a sit-down interview before last night's speech.
"And if we think it's necessary we'll probably do it. And if it isn't necessary we probably won't do it."

Newt for President? Um....
I think it's safe to say that this is not a good plan to win moderates, libertarians and the White House.
