Barney Frank, D-Mass., that his nomination would be ‘the best thing to happen to Democrats since Barry Goldwater.’ Democratic strategist Jim Jordan says he and others in the party ‘passionately’ want to face Gingrich. And from the right, conservative pundit Ann Coulter is warning fellow Republicans that Gingrich’s past extramarital affairs and other baggage make him a far less formidable GOP nominee than Mitt Romney.
