Newt and the Ides of December

This is fascinating, a dredging up of every old debate and grudge match from 1992 forward, mixed into and recast in an era of war and terrorism and new technology. When will Bill Clinton weigh in on Newt? Team Obama must be begging him to stay silent until, say, October, 2012?

Establishment Republicans know this and tremble. Some very non-Establishment Republicans know the same thing and tremble..

Newt should, however, withdraw from the Trump carnival. Reince Priebus is right. The Donald would be a bad moderator even if he wasn’t holding out the possibility of going third party, but that declaration gives Newt his out.
