If you're anything like me, when you think of Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman, you imagine two of the greatest statesmen ever to grace the halls of American government. Bold leaders cast in the mold Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, whose senatorial debates powerfully and eloquently expressed competing visions for the future of America. (Plus, Huntsman's kind of skinny and weird-looking, which Lincoln also was.)
The event will be styled after the historic Lincoln-Douglas debates because Newt Gingrich is a modest, modest person.
