In which the third one remembers how she got that way

Reports are surfacing that the real problem with Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign was not his approach but the reason for that approach.  Namely, the third Mrs. Newt Gingrich.  It seems the former Callista Bisek remembers that she set her foot on the path to becoming the third Mrs. Newt Gingrich while the second Mrs. Newt Gingrich was still the second Mrs. Newt Gingrich and that during a significant energy-and-attention-claiming "campaign" (the Monica Lewinsky scandal and subsequent impeachment of President Clinton).  Perhaps she has no intention of allowing what she did to another woman happen to her.

You know what they say, what comes around goes around.  But with a credit line at Tiffany's of a reported half-million dollars, perhaps the Third Mrs. Gingrich won't make it quite so easy for any putative fourth to supplant her?
