Oh sorry, you're right. I was an idiot and mixed up Gates and Gingrich.

The gist of what I was trying to say and messed up badly was that no matter who he would pick, they'd be criticism. If he picked Gates, people would have said he was an insider. If he picked an outsider, then it looks risky and it will just be more incompetence. If a minority, then he is just pandering...

I speak for myself, not people in general.

(Sorry, I don't mean to sound this terse).

No, no, you were right. I made a dumb comment without thinking or paying attention. Just ignore my stupidity. Sorry again.
