Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich will address the Oklahoma legislature at 2pm on Wednesday April 9th. Newt Gingrich is well-known as the architect of the Contract with America that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years. Gingrich is a brilliant analyst of the political climate, but when it comes to governing or getting alone with people, he is sadly lacking. His E.I.- Emotional Intelligence Quotient- is sorely lacking. Emotional Intelligence describes an ability, capacity, or skill to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups. It is a relatively new area of psychological research. In other words- how you get along with people. His people skills are sorely lacking, but Newt is a great speaker, so you don't want to miss it- 2pm Wednesday- House Chambers- State Capital.
