    In defense...of Newt


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo doesn't support Newt Gingrich's positions on the issues, but finds himself as an unlikely defender of the man, in that he believes questions about Newt Gingrich's past marriages and infidelities are largely irrelevant and distracting to presidential campaigns. 'People in America are generally forgiving of people who admit their shortcomings,' said. 'That was the problem with Herman Cain. He took no responsibility for the sexual allegations and let the story go. Newt took it head on.'
