Gingrich:New, improved.More nimble (Ten years to flip on mandate, less than a week on Ryan)

Newt Gingrich, like Tide and Coke is new and  improved.

We learn, inter alia, from this evening's debate that he has raised his performance as a health care policy analyst.

Viz:

When jacked up by Santorum over his decade of support for an individual mandate to buy insurance, Newt credited (and tacitly solicited credit for) the onset of new wisdom.

Those who remember his (originally correct) disdain for the Ryan Medicare Voucher plan will recall that it only took a few days for him to flop, and declare his prior statements off limits for quotation as well. 

Gingrich-Improved, more nimble.
