Can Gingrich Survive His Infidelity Problem?

Newt Gingrich attempts to explain his failed marriages on the fact that he "worked far too hard" but some are not buying it.

David Frum: "It's not the infidelity. It's the arrogance, hypocrisy, and -- most horrifying to women voters -- the cruelty. Anyone can dump one sick wife. Gingrich dumped two."

Josh Marshall: "There are so many reasons why Gingrich is the lead balloon of presidential politics, but Frum really has this right that the infidelity thing is just something he cannot survive. Not because voters won't tolerate infidelity -- in many circumstances they will -- but because the pattern with Gingrich shows a level of hypocrisy, cruelty and emotional immaturity that most people won't accept in a president."
