Callista Gingrich, The New York Times delved into the lives – and the potential role of future – Calista Gingrich, wife of Newt Gingrich and the chairman of Gingrich Productions. Immediate article mentions the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich began dating while he was still married to his second wife, Marianne Ginther. The paper does not mince words when it comes to describing the impact that the matter was in Gingrich’s political career:
Even in her 20 years when they met, Ms. Bisek had grown up in a town of 1,500, the only son of a meatpacker and a secretary. Attendance at the Roman Catholic Church, who had attended a Lutheran college, where he practiced piano five hours a day. “Is this the most prudent for you to be taking?” Recalls Karen Olson, her best friend, asked.
Today, Ms. Bisek is Mrs. Gingrich, married for 11 years, but perhaps most remembered for the six-year affair that contributed to the political demise of her husband. Critics cast Mr. Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, as a hypocrite who tried to remove a president by infidelity, while the share of himself with Ms. Bisek, who was a congressional aide.
However, Gingrich made his wife a comprehensive and highly visible component of his career thusfar, despite what the document describes how some reluctance, in turn, to herself before a fresh wave of public scrutiny as the campaign with her husband would inevitably lead.
Although none of Gingrich agreed to be interviewed for the NYT article, friends of the couple had much to say. Namely:
“They said they wanted that had gathered at a different time in your life in different circumstances,” said Jackie Cottrell, a friend who worked with Mrs. Gingrich as a staff member on Capitol Hill. “But it is important to note that brought the family together in a loving way.”
However, worry aloud that her “physical presence” in the words of Matt Gunderson, a childhood friend, makes her seem distant or nasal congestion. They see a woman who caricatured as a “blonde bombshell” in the press a few years ago, guards its public image.
… Not to mention:
The same friends who tried to dissuade her from leaving him out more than a decade have concluded that she knew what she was doing, and are betting that voters forgive and forget. Ms. Olson sums up her story in what could become a campaign slogan.
“They are a great partner,” he said, “that had a beginning non-traditional.”
This “transparency” when it comes to romance of the couple – masquerading as the details of their relationship are unclear in these euphemisms – is very likely that the best way to acknowledge that, yes, both serious and painful mistakes, especially In light of the GOP’s traditional position as the “family values” party, but, however, strive to present a unified front. It will be interesting to see if and when Calista was decided to discuss the matter and if not, what story, she and her husband choose her team presented to the public as a possible future first lady.
