Newt Gingrich didn't turn Catholic for nothing.
That's very cynical of me. But Newt suggests if there is a mission for him (if republicans still aren't offering any ideas), he might sign up as a presidential contender.
Newt confirms that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is running for president in 2012. He also says Sarah Palin is a contender if her book tour does well and if she does well on Oprah on Nov. 16.
Is Oprah that much of a barometer on presidential politics? Not sure book sales account for a lot either. Obama did well on Oprah and sold a lot of books but that was because he's Obama, a well-qualified, intelligent leader. Palin is Palin.
