He says Gingrich is the most knowledgeable and articulate GOP candidate in the field, and while much of his rise comes from the misfortune of others a lot of it is “Newt being Newt.”
Dismisses the baggage because he thinks the guy is brilliant and people will see that. And says it’ll be a Romney-Gingrich-Obama fight.
It would be interesting to hear Morris discuss how Gingrich handles some of the coming media assault about Newt’s divorces and so on. Morris proved himself perhaps the best consultant possible to deal with things like that via his work with Bill Clinton.
Because while Gingrich’s skeletons are already out of the closet, he’s going to have to handle the fresh attention to them – or else Morris’ assertion that he’s electable is mistaken.
