Holding out for Newt?

Political Wire's quote of the day goes to Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, emphasis added.
I don't subscribe to the notion that we have to have an identified front-runner candidate early on. The longer you stay inclusive in the process, the more idea generation you get, the more testing, sifting that takes place among the candidates, I think that's healthy for democracy.
Georgia's own Newt Gingrich is basing his potential candidacy on the idea of ideas, to which The New Republic's Jon Chait made this dead-on observation.
Newt Gingrich is living proof that you can acquire a reputation as a man of ideas merely by insisting with sufficient repetitiveness that you care deeply about ideas.
