(credit:  Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images News caption:  FREDERICK, MD - APRIL 02: Ten-year-old James McKane of Frederick (C) watches as Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) (R) and his wife Callista Gingrich sign McKane’s copies of ‘The Battle of the Crater’ during a campaign event at The Frederick Motor Company, a Ford auto dealership, April 2, 2012 in Frederick, Maryland. Maryland will hold one of three primaries in the nation Tuesday. After acknowledging it is impossible for him to win the GOP presidential nomination outright, Gingrich has vowed to stay in the presidential race even after firing a third of his campaign staff last week, taking the fight to the party convention.)

Bag’s Take-Away:
On one hand, you could call it “last dance” or “party’s over.” On the other hand (Newt’s right one, “bottom” left), you could say the party’s just getting started.  
What I’m wondering, though, is how much passion Newt’s going to feel after he’s forced, finally, to give up the campaign — and the constant, free attention.

(photo credit: Josh Haner/The New York Times caption:  Clapping and twisting in an early “American Bandstand” style, Mr. Gingrich unwound for an hour or so with his wife, Callista, after a long day on the campaign trail, dancing to “All My Loving” by the Beatles and, the lone couple on the floor, to “Rocket Man” by Elton John.)
