Time for a new party. A party of the people, by the people and for the people. One that is not located in Washington D.C. The old Republicans have mostly caved and have lost their fight.

“If [the Republicans'] competitor in ‘16 is going to be Hillary Clinton -- supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still relatively popular President Barack Obama -- trying to win that will be [like winning] the Super Bowl. And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level.”

Gingrich raises some interesting points. But while Hillary Clinton is indeed
