Gingrich Had Affair During Clinton Probe

Is history repeating itself?  Obama was helped immeasurably in his Senate run by two of his opponents blowing themselves up with sex/divorce scandals.  It's hard for me to imagine that the American people, esp. Republicans, will give Gingrich and Giuliani passes for their unconscionable behavior toward their ex-wives.  And Romney's gonna get killed for being 10x the flip-flopper Kerry was accused of being...
The hypocrisy here really boggles the mind (despite his pathetic rationalizations).  You just can't make this stuff up!

Gingrich argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite for pursuing Clinton's infidelity.

"The president of the United States got in trouble for committing a felony in front of a sitting federal judge," the former Georgia congressman said of Clinton's 1998 House impeachment on perjury and obstruction of justice charges. "I drew a line in my mind that said, 'Even though I run the risk of being deeply embarrassed, and even though at a purely personal level I am not rendering judgment on another human being, as a leader of the government trying to uphold the rule of law, I have no choice except to move forward and say that you cannot accept ... perjury in your highest officials."
