    I thought Gingrich was supposed to be the History Professor.  The 50-state idea is either braggadocio or woefully misguided.  Richard Nixon blamed his loss in 1960 more on his pledge to campaign in every state than on the obvious voter fraud.  He believed he wasted key campaigning time late in the game by visiting states he couldn’t have lost.  He thought he could have instead made some battleground states too difficult to steal.
