Default Anybody else think Newt is making it known during the debates that he is by far the

most educated candidate for president? Nobody else even comes close to this guy and his knowledge of how the law works. Not just this example, but as a whole. He's a fricken dictionary.

He was just a blip on the presidential radar four months ago, and now I can see him blowing by Romney and Cain and nabbing the republican nomination.

I agree that he always comes off as very well spoken and very smart and he definitely has the institutional knowledge of how government works and would likely be an effective manager of his cabinet and staff and be good at working with the representatives as well.

However, I think he has entirely too much personal baggage to ever get win the general election. And I don't think he has a chance in the primaries either. I think the media is just now turning their focus to him as the non-Romney candidate now that Perry has essentially imploded and Cain will likely do so quite soon as well.

Newt has been around to long, IMO.

Let alone he believes we should preemptively strike Iran via Israel. I dont like the current mentality among the so called conservatives that we should be aiding, or getting involved directly, in conflicts around the globe. You would think anyone worth their salt would be able to see our track history in regards to getting others to do our dirty work.

I'd be all over Newt. This is by far the most intelligent, well read, and articulate candidate. Newt was the author of the 1994 contract with America.
He is a realist, I believe he would be able to CHANGE the government for the positive. When confronted with a difficult congress he has the experience to work through the issues not go on TV and whine about it.

Personally, I have been a Newt fan for months. With that, I don't think he can win it. Right now I think the best ticket is Romney/Newt.
