'Fessin Up

Newt confirms one of the worst-kept "secrets" in politics: He had an affair while Speaker, during and following the impeachment saga (with a woman who is now his wife).

Newt's distinction that there is a difference between his personal moral failing and the president's lying under oath about a personal moral failing is precise -- legally.

Whether that distinction will be considered fair in a political sense (particularly with the conservative base)remains to be seen.

In the big paicture of course, this could be said to help Mitt Romney who has managed to stay married to his first and only wife (with no skirt-chasing rumors dogging him).
