Underestimate Obama at your peril, Newt

Newt Gingrich's campaign rationale: "I can bloody Obama's nose in a debate. Therefore I am qualified to be president of the United States." The notion is truly stunning, but that's Gingrich's pitch in a nutshell. And its working among those Republicans simply spoiling for a fight. Not only is the former House Speaker vastly overestimating his debating skills, he (like many before him) is vastly underestimating Barack Obama. Just ask those who dismissed the president and ended up as political corpses on the road to the White House.
