Gingrich: "I feel liberated"

On Fox News last night, Newt Gingrich explained last week's mass exodus of campaign staff.

"My vision -- the one that I learned with Goldwater in '64, the one I learned with Reagan in '79 and '80, that you saw in '93-'94 with the contract with America -- my vision is of a people-oriented, grassroots campaign where Newt.org becomes the center of new solutions, new ideas, new energy, a campaign that's inclusive, that brings together everybody in America of every ethnic background who wants to change Washington.

And I think that that was so different from the normal Republican model that there just wasn't a fit.

I, frankly, feel liberated."
