It sounds entertaining in theory, but watching Newt's progression from extreme hubris to only mild egocentricity has actually been sad. First he was positive he would be the nominee. Then he was still pretty positive he'd be the nominee. Then reality forced him to endorse Romney in a way most people would call dickish.
And now he's got to eat even more humble pie — the only kind he doesn't enjoy — by defending Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital…
"If you look over time, most of the companies being invested in did well," Gingrich said [on NBC's "Meet the Press"]. "Most of them paid off the debt. If you look at Staples, for example, the return on investment was enormous. They paid off all the debt."
Hey, maybe Newt could learn a thing or two from Staples.
