Gingrich is ONCE AGAIN letting his ego write checks that his popularity/intellect can't cash.
Which is how the former Speaker finds himself "flirting" with a '08 presidential run.
The Politico's Mike Allen has the story.
Look, we get it, Fred Thompson ain't happening.
And that's too bad.
But how can anyone (and we mean anyone) in the GOP support a nominee who gives Hillary Clinton's negatives a good run for the money?
