Gingrich wouldn't vote for Ron Paul

(CNN) – Newt Gingrich said Tuesday he wouldn't vote for Ron Paul if the Texas congressman won the 2012 GOP nomination.

Speaking to CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Gingrich slammed Paul as out of line with mainstream Republican viewpoints, including his stance on Israel, Iran, and September 11.

"I think Ron Paul's views are totally outside the mainstream of virtually every decent American," Gingrich said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

BLITZER'S BLOG: Who’s dropping out after Iowa?

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

Dubuque, Iowa (CNN) – So how many tickets will there be out of the Iowa caucuses?

I know the three front-runners – Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul – are all set for New Hampshire.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Iraq could break apart

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) - I am beginning to suspect that Iraq could wind up following Yugoslavia’s example.

As you know, there once was a country called Yugoslavia. It had several distinct provinces based on ethnic differences: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Kosovo and Serbia. You get the point.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Civil war dangers in Iraq

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) - It’s not even a week since all U.S. troops have been pulled out of Iraq, but the situation there is quickly deteriorating. I don’t think it’s by any means out of the question that civil war is possible.

The terror attacks in the country Thursday were brutal – scores dead, many more innocents wounded. The pictures are horrendous.
