Newt!

by Rich Lowry

I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s leading polls in a week or two. Here’s my eyes-wide-open take on his candidacy today. If he does take the lead, it will be very perilous for him. The media won’t give him a break and will have a lot to work with. And, after an amazing comeback, he may find it harder than usual to walk the fine line between his peppery impatience with the media and politics as usual and an off-putting arrogance.
