My favorite speech last night was by Newt Gingrich. I have never seen Gingrich give a bad speech and he was at the top of his game last night. Note how he deftly attempted at the beginning of his speech to turn the non-endorsement of Cruz into an implicit endorsement of Trump by Cruz. He then went on to make a devastating speech against Hillary Clinton. The smartest man in American politics, it is a tragedy for the nation that his inability to not engage in tawdry infidelities earlier in his life cut short his political career after he had masterminded the Republican winning of the House for the first time in almost a half century. If Trump wins in the fall, and I abide by my prediction that he will, I hope that Gingrich is his chief of staff.
