Newt Gingrich’s former wife, Marianne has been yapping and yapping to the press about her ex. This is very unusual for her. She is a woman who’s had nothing to say about the breakdown of her marriage to the former Speaker of the House in nearly 12 years. Now, all of a sudden, she’s spilling all the beans including the facts of his presidential ambitions.
Gingrich himself has quite a reputation as a lady’s man. He divorced Marianne in 2000 after asking his current wife to marry him. But history repeated itself there. Because he’d asked Marianne to marry him before he’d asked his first wife for a divorce.
“Reports of extramarital affairs have dogged him for years as a result of two messy divorces, but he has refused to discuss them publicly.
Gingrich, who frequently campaigned on family values issues, divorced his second wife, Marianne, in 2000 after his attorneys acknowledged Gingrich’s relationship with his current wife, Callista Bisek, a former congressional aide more than 20 years younger than he is.
His first marriage, to his former high school geometry teacher, Jackie Battley, ended in divorce in 1981. Although Gingrich has said he doesn’t remember it, Battley has said Gingrich discussed divorce terms with her while she was recuperating in the hospital from cancer surgery.

What a guy! And he thinks he can win the presidency? Well, I guess he can. These are unprecedented and interesting times we live in where just about ANYTHING is possible. ANYTHING goes. He’ll likely run on a “family values” ticket and win….
