Run Newt Run!


Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) will spend two days in New Hampshire next week to meet editorial boards and conservative activists, convincing several of his former House colleagues that he will run for the presidency in 2008.

Gingrich will spend Monday and part of Tuesday in the Granite State and has packed his schedule with events calculated to boost his profile and woo influential Republicans whose support would be critical in a presidential primary. New Hampshire is the site of the first primary.

Gingrich will attend a $50-per-person fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican State Committee and meet a coalition of conservative activists. He has also scheduled meetings with the Concord Monitor, Union Leader and Valley News and an appearance on New England Cable News, said Rick Tyler, his spokesman.

I for one look forward to an all-star matchup between Phil Gramm, Liddy Dole, Steve Forbes, Pat Robertson, Newt Gingrich, and Pat Buchanan.

(..and, on the other side we can expect the all-star matchup of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Al Sharpton, Bob Kerrey, Bill Bradley, and perennial Fox News Democrat "Some asshole with a mean sign".)
