He doesn't mean it of course. Barring a cosmos-bending event involving super-heroics by the tubby geezer, or some sort of magic incantation, Newt Gingrich will never become President. But I'm pretty sure that isn't his goal, anyway. He just wants to keep his political relevance--whatever that is--so that he can continue making money off of gullible conservatives. My theory is, this is the last realistic time he can run. At 67, it is unlikely that he'll try again. So rather than say he might run, and then slink off stage, he's actually going to give it a half-assed shot. If that much.
