What stands out about Gingrich, to me, is that they have in common a very unusual profile for a Republican politician. Very wonky Rockefeller Republican who moved to the right over time as their party moved right and maybe as events persuaded them to move right, and they still very much exhibit the technocratic countenance of the Rockefeller Republican-a program for every problem. Conservative humility about human nature and about the potential of technical solutions is not readily discernible.
