Thank God!


WASHINGTON (AP) – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will not run for president in 2008 after determining he could not legally explore a bid and remain as head of his tax-exempt political organization, a spokesman said Saturday.


Gingrich, 64, tried to rehabilitate his image this year by admitting publicly to his extramarital affair during the Clinton impeachment scandal. He made the admission in an interview last month with Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, and he won praise for the acknowledgment from another conservative Christian leader, the Rev. Jerry Falwell.

All I can say is: Thank God! I think this country is even less prepared for a Newt in office than a Hillary. Seriously, at this point, conservative that I am, there’s not a single candidate who has stood out and said to me, “I am the one.” Presidential politics is such a waste of time. And besides, I will not vote for one who consults with such non-partisan folks like the good Rev Dobson. Focus on the family, not the First Family! Stop telling us what you think about politics Mr. Dobson!

I’ll tell you this: The one that promises to cut taxes will likely get my vote. The one who actually makes it happen will win my eternal affection. At this point, Ross Perot is starting to sound like a viable candidate. (Uh, then again, no he’s not!)
