Newt Still Acts as GOP Cheerleader

By + More

He's been gone from the House for nearly a decade, but former Speaker Newt Gingrich remains the top internal booster for the beleaguered Republicans. Insiders report that Gingrich regularly blasts E-mails to House GOP leaders filled with new ideas and cheers for the whole Republican team. "Newt is the ultimate team player," says one of those who get the E-mails from Gingrich's AOL account. "They are great to get. He's a cheerleader for our side, and he boosts our morale with his E-mails. And he's got great ideas." However, he hasn't indicated in those E-mails if he plans to run for president.
