The sidelines for Newt?

Phillip Klein at the American Spectator blog reports on Newt Gingrich’s appearance before the American Enterprise Institute. According to Klein, Gingrich remained coy about whether he would run for president, but suggested he may be able to accomplish more by staying out of the race and focusing on developing and spreading ideas for confronting our nation’s challenges.
Gingrich had kind words for Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson. He was more critical of John McCain, stating that McCain faces the “greatest challenge” in terms of capturing the nomination. Gingrich also referred to McCain-Feingold as the first legislation to try to silence dissent since the Alien & Sedition Acts, and he blasted the McCain-Kennedy immigration legislation.
