USA Today’s OnPolitics directs listeners to Newt

We welcome USA Today readers who’ve been pointed to BlogTalkRadio to hear Ed Morrissey’s exclusive interview with former House speaker Newt Gingrichnewt1.jpg that aired yesterday.

This interview comes at an interesting time, as USA Today puts it, there is speculation and “chances that [Newt] might get into the Republican race himself” for the Presidency in 2008.

The On Politics section of USA Today aims to be “the news, the people, the road to Election Day,” points readers to media coverage that will influence and inform our decisions in the 2008 election.

In the interview, Gingrich also discusses his Solutions Day initiative, which takes place tomorrow.
