So much for shooting his mouth off.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) came a step closer to suggesting he will not run for president as he praised other Republicans on "Fox News Sunday."
He confirmed he recently had dinner with Fred Thompson, adding that the former Tennessee senator would be a "very formidable candidate."
Gingrich didn't sound like a candidate looking to enter the political fray as he complimented Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, and Mitt Romney.
"These three are serious people. They're working very hard, and if they can fill the vacuum, I don't feel any great need to run," Gingrich said. I'm sure the "Pygmies" will be glad to hear that. It's not that he's not right about some of the candidates, or the process, but if you're going to make a lot of noise, at least have the guts to stand by your own words.
