    First of all, anyone with a resume of Calista's is pathetic, and obviously after the power, power, power...read the article in the New Yorker about her...she threatened to leave Newt if he didn't take her on their trip to Greece!! Come on now...and we are to believe that he is a changed man and that she has changed him? She looks like a Stepford wife, cold, unemotional, no warmth and oh, that hair!! What is that?? How does she keep it that way? Relax Calista...you look like a robot...and so out of her element...maybe she IS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM...not her book about an elephant!!!

    I guess it is a good question, but I never gave it a thought. She won't be President, so what would I care. She is who she is and that is that.

    Cha -Ching! Calista is looking for the $$$. She's got her revolving Tiffany's account and I can't wait to see how she'll redo the White House when Newter gets elected. It will cost the Americans a fortune.

    What a shock a husband tries to find time with his wife. Good for you sir if you can balance work and family we should all strive to do the same.
