Think about this for a minute.
Okay, if you or me was in Gingrich's shoes what would be the best strategy here? You know you have this in your past. Right now your mainly
battling Repubs, Obama hasn't even gotten started yet. You know this is going to come out eventually. So what do you do? Do you sit around and go
to bed worried sick every night about it? Saying to yourself, "Wow, i'm so glad no one outed this today about my ex-wife", then to go on hoping it
never comes out? Or do you sit down, talk to your ex, explain to her that even though things were rocky you need her to do this for the sake of the
kids? I think the wife would agree. Besides, i'm sure after this many years, behind the scenes, Newt and Marianne have are on speaking terms and
probably have a friendly relationship with one another.
So, I think the best strategy for Newt would be to "out" it himself. That way you stop any and all other opposition from doing it and catching you
off guard. You out it yourself so you can handle the damage control the way it needs to be handled. Sounds like the best strategy to take here. I
promise you, as hard as it was for her, Marianne was in on this as well. Do you really not want the father of your children to be PoTuS? Your kids
would be taken care of for life. This was orchestrated to stop opposition from hurting his campaign and so Newt himself could control the opposition
or damage to further project him to the Republican lead. I for one, respect the strategy. I think it was very well played and would have done the
same thing myself.
In the end, it will come down between Newt and Obama. Now that Newt has all his dirty laundry aired, Obama will have nothing to attack. Not even
Newt's presidential follies because Newt's never been President. Newt is going to go after all of Obama's though. Either way, it's going to be a
very very tough fight for Obama. He won't pull this off as easy as McCain...if Obama pulls it off at all.
