Gingrich: 2008 Race Should Avoid Private Lives Of Candidates

Nashville (AP) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in Nashville Tuesday night that the personal lives of White House hopefuls shouldn't become an issue in the 2008 campaign.

Earlier this month Gingrich said he was seeking forgiveness for his own extramarital affair committed while he pursued President Clinton's impeachment in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Since the announcement, Gingrich said he's received a positive response from colleagues and others.

He's considering a race for the presidency.

Gingrich was in Nashville to speak at Vanderbilt University.
