Can you believe it's almost time to think about the next Presidential campaign? Looks like one of the first to actually throw his hat in the ring is former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and he did it via Twitter and Facebook today.Social networking is taking center stage these days with major announcements from celebrities and now even Presidential hopefuls.  He even relied on a website his staff created to explore his chances for a bid without it being an "official" exploratory committee.

Newt brings with him great name recognition but still needs to work on his Positive Intensity Score. Which basically means he needs to earn the public's trust on the issues.
