Today is the birthday of one of the more memorable leaders and friends from my years in politics. He engineered the Republican takeover of the House in 1994. Something that political insiders and experts considered impossible. But he did it and went on to lead the Republican Revolution. His energy is boundless and as they would say in his native state of Georgia, "there is no quit in him."
Here is a passage from my book Citizen Mack that might give you a sense of the man:
…… there may not have been anyone in the modern history of the House of Representatives who was more committed to doing very big things than one Newton Leroy Gingrich of Georgia. His goals were simple enough: first, become the majority party, then repeal most of the work of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society and a lot of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. And, in the meantime, win the Cold War and halt the march of communism.
