Newt Gingrich would be such a weak challenger to President Barack Obama, according to Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., that his nomination would be "the best thing to happen to Democrats since Barry Goldwater."

Democratic strategist Jim Jordan says he and others in the party "passionately" want to face Gingrich. And from the right, conservative pundit Ann Coulter is warning fellow Republicans that Gingrich's past extramarital affairs and other baggage make him a far less formidable GOP nominee than Mitt Romney.
But even as Gingrich's sudden rise has filled many Obama supporters with cheer and some Republicans with dread, some Democratic strategists worry that the combative former House speaker would present some challenges for the Obama campaign that would not exist if Romney were the GOP candidate.
