Newt Gingrich?

National Review's Jonah Goldberg.

He may well be able to do it, as he is the second best talker in America after Bill Clinton.

Really? I can't see it. Not because I find his policy positions odious, but I've just found Gingrich to just be middling at best as a public speaker. There are quite a few Republicans even I would rank as better communicators than Gingrich (Romney, Giuliani, and McCain for instance - all horribly wrong idiots but much better communicators than Gingrich).
