With all the talk of a Bob McDonnell primary, remember this.

Anita Kumar of The Washington Post recently talked about Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, one of the most popular governors in the country, and who -- or if -- he will endorse for President during the primaries.

McDonnell has spoken to former governors Romney of Massachusetts and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota numerous times, including last week. In February, McDonnell dined with Pawlenty in Richmond, raising more than a few eyebrows.

He has also spoken or met with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich several times. Romney, Pawlenty and Gingrich all came to Virginia to help McDonnell during his 2009 gubernatorial campaign.
One thing Kumar did not include in the story was this quote I wrote about two months ago:
New York Times: Other than Reagan, the most significant Republican in the last half-century.

McDonnell: Newt Gingrich. That Contract with America really changed the way Republicans approached government -- positive, problem solving, solutions and then getting things done.

I think that was a phenomenal turnaround.
That's not to say McDonnell will endorse Newt, but I think it would have been a worthwhile inclusion in the article.
