Gingrich's past affairs should only be an issue

… because he presents himself as some sort of moral authority. As far as I'm concerned it's his views on policy and ideology that concern me more than how many wives he's cheated on. However his hypocrisy about it — leading the charge against Bill Clinton's affair while in the middle of his own — is something to be considered.

Which isn't to say that his fidelity isn't a concern to some people, but the people who most claim fidelity is important are the same people who will ignore his transgressions. Pretty much everyone already knows that he cheated on his past wives with the next one in the chain and very few people seem to be all that concerned about it regardless of what their views on fidelity are. I think it'll take more than this to knock Newt out of the race. #seb #Politics #newtgingrich #infidelity
