My Night with Newt

Patti Davis confronted Gingrich on his politics and discovered a guy who doesn't compare to her father.

May I just point out, though, that presidents are expected to practice diplomacy? And that the president who Newt keeps invoking – my father – was never arrogant. In 1987, addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Ronald Reagan said, “The dreams of ordinary people reach to astonishing heights. If we diplomatic pilgrims are to achieve equal altitude, we must build all we do on the full breadth of humanity’s will and consent and the full expanse of the human heart.”

Interestingly, he never claimed to be a grandiose thinker.

Patti has contributed to numerous magazines and newspapers over the past 20 years, and one of her screenplays, Sacrifices of the Heart, was produced by Hallmark in 2007. She has just finished a script about a fictional First Daughter, and is working on another novel titled The Myth of Water.
