Gingrich: Pelosi has 'consistently delivered' for Obama, Petraeus made 'human mistake'

This morning, Rep. Nancy Pelosi has scheduled a news conference where she's expected to announce whether or not she plans to run again for House Minority Leader.

Former presidential candidate and House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighs in on her decision on Starting Point today, saying that he has a "hunch" that the president will ask Pelosi to stay and that she'll comply.

"I think he sees a team he's worked with for four years," Gingrich says. "She and Harry Reid have delivered for him consistently."

Gingrich and his wife Callista also discuss the ongoing investigations into Generals Petraeus and Allen, with Newt stressing that what "makes no sense" is that such high ranking officials could engage in email correspondences "thinking they're invisible."

The Gingriches also discuss their new historical books, "Victory at Yorktown" and "Land of the Pilgrim's Pride."
