Newt Gingrich received a major endorsement from former Democratic Party chairman and Presidential candidate Howard Dean. I wonder if Dean is endorsing Gingrich for candidate and not endorsing him for President? Slight difference. Yeah - Newt Gingrich, role model for the moral right! Married 3 times divorced his 1st wife while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. Had an affair while married to his 2nd wife. During his affair, he persecuted Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal.
(CNN) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich won't yet say if he's running for president in 2012, but he picked up an unlikely endorsement Sunday.
Gingrich, a leading conservative Republican, has "a ton of ideas to move the country forward," former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, a past chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday."
"There are no ideas in the Republican Party right now in the Congress," Dean said. "They're the party of 'no.' They desperately need some intellectual leadership. And whatever you think of Newt Gingrich, he can supply intellectual leadership. So I hope he does run. "
Gingrich, who also appeared on the show, joked that Dean's backing could doom his candidacy if he runs. Link
Gingrich has "intellectual leadership"? He is intellectually bankrupt like the rest of the GOP party. Whether this is a strategic rhetoric from Dean - endorsing any current leader in the GOP is completely nonsense.
Just look at the following contenders:
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels
But if I was to endorse any of the following - it is Palin all the way! It will make great late night laughs during the primaries!
