Gingrich Redeemed

Bill Clinton, out campaigning for President Obama, remembers his own annus horribilis:

He called this year only “partly” a replay of 1994, the first midterm election of his presidential tenure, when Democrats lost their majorities in Congress. “The Republicans are not led as adroitly as they were when Newt Gingrich had a whole plan,” he said.

On the other hand, he said, Mr. Gingrich, who took over as speaker of the House in 1994, was willing to work with the White House post-election. He accused this year’s Republicans of promising gridlock.
