Please Please Please
Run Newt Run!
In remarks that were critical of both parties' recent performance, Gingrich told a luncheon group of scholars and reporters at the Brookings Institution that he will make a decision in the fall of 2007 about running.

"If at that point there's still a vacuum . . . then we'll probably do something," Gingrich said, adding that his policy pronouncements have more weight if he is seen as a potential presidential candidate. "If you're interested in defining the idea context and the political context for the next generation of Americans, which I am, the most effective way to do that is to be seen as potentially available."
I still think the Republican presidential landscape looks simple to handicap. Assuming Colin Powell doesn't get int he mix, it's McCain vs. Giuliani. Frist-Allen-Gingrich-Bush-whoever are just wasting time. But it would be fun to watch Newt lose.
