Campaign endings and campaign beginnings on the tube this morning. Gingrich gets what’ll probably be his last chance for awhile at the Sunday spotlight by hitting CBS and CNN while Biden will turn up on NBC to kick off the general election campaign by explaining precisely how a Romney presidency would destroy America. There’s somee veepstakes jockeying going on today too: Kelly Ayotte will pinch hit for Romney by reacting to Biden’s inevitable “war on women” nonsense on “Meet the Press” while Marco Rubio will talk about the DREAM Act with Chris Wallace.
