Clash of the nice guys

Email

WASHINGTON — Iowa front-runners Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have a little problem. Both are too nice to be mean to each other.

Who can throw the first punch in a tight race growing tighter?

This is why God made Newt Gingrich. The formerly self-anointed “nice guy,” the one who wasn’t going to go negative, has flip-flopped on protocol. Insisting that he lost Iowa to these lesser mortals because of Romney’s negative ads, he has declared that he’ll no longer make nice.
