The Post’s new ladyblog—-She The People—-has a post musing on why Callista Gingrich, third wife of GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, isn’t acting like The Other Woman. It includes such gems as:
Whether intentionally or not, the image she presents is all wife and no mistress. Formal and reserved in her red blazers, ruby lipstick and stunningly coiffed platinum hair, Gingrich does nothing if not project the portrait of political spouse. One wonders if she does so precisely because she is debuting in the role after all those years as the other woman.
Perhaps Gingrich, who has been married to her husband for nearly 12 years—-three political lifetimes, and twice as long as they had an affair—-is acting like a politician’s wife because she is a politician’s wife?
