Professor Gingrich

Nice little piece in the Wall Street Journal yesterday looking at Newt Gingrich’s time as a professor.  Everything you know about Gingrich now, you could see then.  The best part:

A year into his first full-time teaching job, Newt Gingrich applied to be college president, submitting with his application a paper titled “Some Projections on West Georgia College’s Next Thirty Years.”

In short, never exactly lacking in ego or ambition.  He also was not averse to playing fast and loose with the rules regarding running for office while serving on the faculty.   In short, Newt now = Newt then.
