CBS News is reporting that Presidential hopeful, Newt Gingrich, who surged today in a national Rasmussen poll after Monday night’s debate said he would "certainly" call on the Governor for advice.
The former Speaker also says that he’d like her to take a major role in his administration.
"I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I’m president, but nothing has been discussed of any kind. And it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss it at this time."
****Update — Newt leading in new SC poll, and the Marianne Gingrich bomb****
Two nights after his impressive debate in SC and just one night after Gov. Palin said she’d vote for Newt in SC, Gingrich has turned a previous 11 point trail (just 3 days ago) into a 3 point lead over Romney according to the previous and latest InsiderAdvantage polls.
I notice some are especially gleeful over the reported Marianne Gingrich interview that ABC News is preparing to air on Thursday night. I do not believe Gov. Palin would take anything Marianne Gingrich says seriously on substance. Rather, I think Governor Palin will be doing what the rest of the reasonable voting public will do and seriously question its timing.
As a Palin supporter — one who respects her decision to not run — I understood the timing of HBO’s decision to air Game Change. Something our very own Stacy Drake has picked apart and exposed quite well for what it is. They intended to run it in the middle of a primary.
I also knew a certain scumbag/stalker’s book was to be released in a pre-primary season which — again — based on hearsay sought to discredit and smear the Governor in a very hasty way.
If ABC News or Marianne Gingrich had something truly disturbing to say, they should have been decent enough to warn us of such a long time ago and not wait until the 11th hour of an important primary election.
If they weren’t doing it to Newt Gingrich, they’d be doing it to Sarah Palin. And despite who we support, we must band together to make sure the Lamestream Media knows these types of gimmicks will not work.
In fact, I believe this can only strengthen Gingrich in the long run who never expected to skate easily to the nomination like perhaps one of the others thought he could.
