Not a Happy Warrior

Newt Gingrich's speech was remarkably lacking in grace -- no whisper of congratulations to his competitors.

What's more, it was weird.  When you just got smoked in a primary, it's an "unusual choice" to use speech time discussing your actions on your first day as President.

Lots of it sounded soaked in bitterness -- toward the press, toward the President, in general.  As for his "contract" -- why wait until now?

If a voter who wasn't an avid political junkie tuned in tonight and compared Romney to Gingrich, whom do you think s/he would find to be a more appealing banner-carrier for the Republican Party?
