Good Lord the Republican nomination race is off the rails nuts, so things could change in a heartbeat, but it looks like a real possibility that Newt Gingrich -- NEWT GINGRICH -- may end up being the GOP's pick to run against Barack Obama this fall.
I mean, WTF? RUFingkiddingme??
SCHMIDT: Look, I think, not only are we not moving towards a coalescing of support by the Republican establishment for Newt Gingrich, we're probably moving toward the declaration of war on Newt Gingrich by the Republican establishment. And if Newt Gingrich is able to win the Florida primary, you will see a panic and a meltdown of the Republican establishment that is beyond my ability to articulate in the English language.
People will go crazy and you will have this five week period until the Super Tuesday states which is going to be as unpredictable, tumultuous as any period in modern American politics. It will be a remarkable thing to watch should that happen in Florida.
