Newt Won't Run

We're not Newt fans, to be sure, but he has a surprisingly interesting 1971 doctoral dissertation from Tulane on the subject of the disgusting Belgian colonial rule in the Congo that is ... quite accurate. His politics, however, as a leader, sucked. if only he maintained his collegiate ideals. Anyway: he's out. From Politico:

"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) decided Saturday morning not to run for president just as his staff was preparing to launch a website to seek $30 million in pledges, his spokesman told Politico.

"Gingrich had planned to seek pledges as part of a three-week exploration without making any formal declaration of candidacy for the Republican nomination — an approach that several Republican leaders said was legally questionable."
