Gingrich has been married three times. Esquire did an interview of Marianne Gingrich, his second wife, that tells the story of how he and Edwards connect. You might read it here and comment again. I would appreciate feedback on this.
Yes, I know we are all human. But someone who dumps two supposed loves of his life seemingly out of the blue... is this someone we want to endorse? He asked Marianne Gingrich to marry him while still married to his first wife (who was ill, possibly with cancer- she was about to go into surgery to find out). This woman is the mother of his two daughters.
Then he asked a third wife to marry him while still married to Marianne, who says in the Esquire interview, "He was impressed easily by position, status and money... he wanted to be somebody."
Certainly a President must be ambitious, or he/she wouldn't run. But this fickle and needy? He was proposing to get into a new contract before he had dispensed with the old. (Is this even legal?) Marianne says he has lost his way, compromising too often for money and not enough on principle.
