GOP strategist: "If he's the nominee, it's a disaster."

from CNN..

Washington (CNN) -- Newt Gingrich might have led Republicans to their first House majority in 40 years in the 1990s, but the prospect of the former House Speaker becoming their presidential nominee is producing significant GOP angst.

"If he's the nominee, it's a disaster. There is no way to sugar-coat it," said one GOP congressional strategist describing the tension after Gingrich won South Carolina.

"There is a reason most people who know him best aren't supporting him," said a former House colleague still serving in Congress.

Those GOP congressional sources and many others spoke on condition of anonymity because they believe Gingrich, who is running against the "Republican establishment," will only turn the criticism into his advantage.

They are sincerely freaking out about the possibility of a Gingrich nomination. So funny!

4. I used to think Bob Michel retiring was one of the worst things that ever happened

to politics in this country. Had he not, Newt would never have been speaker.

On the other hand, we wouldn't have Newt where he is now, had he not been speaker. I think we'd still be way ahead if no one knew who Newt was.
