The Des Moines Register reports that Newt Gingrich is using his book tour to lay the ground work for a possible run for the Presidency in '08.

It is hard to believe that it is almost 10 years since Gingrich went "moose hunting" in New Hampshire to lay the groundwork for a challenge against Bill Clinton. That didn't work out so well (apparently he couldn't find any moose or enough voters who wanted him in the White House) but he is apparently back on the hustings again.

You can say what you want about Newt (and what I have to say usually isn't too kind), but he does have ideas. And he doesn't seem quite as scary after 8 year of Tom Delay.
