Concerns among Newt's colleagues

Race 4 2012 has a post up stating that McCain is preparing to make a Romney endorsement. The article quotes a source (in an article from The Hill) who, I think, sums up the fears among GOP insiders w/r/t a Newt candidacy. Even for those who respect his considerable talents:

There is growing concern among many of McCain’s Senate Republican colleagues on whether Gingrich is electable in a match-up against President Obama.

“Newt’s hand is always six inches from the self-destruct button,” one GOP lawmaker said last week.

I will go on record: if newt is the nominee, Obama will be a two term president. Period. Newt has WAY too much baggage. Unfortunate, but true.

Only Romney is clean enough to avoid damaging attacks from Obama. Nothing Obama can say will resonate with independent voters and turn them off of Romney.

Don't discount Huntsman yet. I bet he makes a showing in NH. He needs to come in first there to be a real possibility, and it just could happen. I give it 10%, but we all know odds thinner than that have come through before.

Think...125mm shell to the chest...
Medic to the rescue...ya right...fine, 1% chance...
