    Newty has a 'sane' period.....

    ... or why the GOP will never again hold the office of the President.


    WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regularly brushes off the idea of a 2016 presidential bid. But if she were to run, at least one prominent Republican thinks his party would be completely outmatched.

    "The Republican party is incapable of competing at that level," Gingrich said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press."

    "First of all, she's very formidable as a person," he said. "She's a very competent person. She's married to the most popular Democrat in the country; they both think [it] would be good for her to be president. It makes it virtually impossible to stop her for the nomination."

    In addition to having Bill Clinton's support, Hillary Clinton would also have the backing of President Barack Obama, who will still be a "relatively popular president," Gingrich added. "Trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl."

    Sentiment: Hold

    • 4 years out is a very long horizon to start anointing winners.

      In 2004 no one had heard of Barack Obama. In 1988 no one had heard of Clinton.

      A war, a scandal, a financial crisis, a bunch of AGW disasters could all change the calculus.

      Plus, Newt is the guy who was 100% sure that HE was inevitable.
