I really like this pairing
Both smart - great chemistry - more like this please.
As a data point, I wasn't paying attention to Newt in the 90s, so my opinion of him is based on the debates and, of the field, he seems to have by far the best combination of intelligence and lack of laughable craziness. I'm taking everyone's word that he has more baggage that the American Airlines lost and found and is a megalomaniac who will self-destruct. If he's going to self-destruct, and does so after winning the nomination, that would be great, but he makes me nervous because he's a good debater.
