The baggage falls into two categories: A) Newt’s personal family values baggage and B) Positions that he has taken on issues like health care reform, immigration and the environment that will horrify modern-day GOP ideologues. Check out, especially, Gingrich’s 2005-2007 position on health care reform, which dovetails quite well with Barack Obama’s approach.
