Gingrich's Troubles

Elizabeth Arnold talks to Linda about House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The House votes next week on whether to reelect him as Speaker of the House. But revelations about his alleged ethics abuses have put the outcome of that vote in doubt. Most Republicans say he will be re-elected...but privately, they worry that these ethics charges will make him less effective as a leader.
