Newt is here!
Newt has been here in Spokane for a couple of days, taking part in a conference on the future of health care. He did a long and moderately interesting interview with Richard Brown, the main anchorman of KXLY-TV. Here's the video.
One thing in the interview was potentially significant. When Brown pushed him in the predictable way about deciding whether to run for Pres, Newt referred to George Washington in 1791, who was tired of politics and eager to go home to his farm ... until several other leaders persuaded GW that he was needed for a second term. Sounds like a rather strong hint that Newt will "allow himself to be drafted" if the proper set of leaders "persuade" him.
