Newt Gingrich — the candidate women simply can’t resist

For Newt Gingrich, it was quite a week. He went from a lumpy, grumpy afterthought in Iowa and New Hampshire to surprise star in South Carolina, that cradle of traditional family values.

There’ll be much commentary on this remarkable comeback, but I’m guessing most of it will miss the obvious point: Newt had to have swept the women’s vote. How could they resist him?
