Gingrich to Obama: Get advice from Bill Clinton

Lima, Ohio (CNN) – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich offered a piece of advice Tuesday to President Obama, urging him to seek counsel from former President Bill Clinton in the increasingly likely event that Democrats lose control of the House next Tuesday.

Gingrich, asked if he thinks this president can re-calibrate after a midterm drubbing in the way Clinton was able to after Democratic losses in 1994, said “it’s up to Obama.”

The president can find his footing again, Gingrich suggested, if he “can accept the reality that this is a repudiating election, and can take a deep breath, and frankly sit down and talk to Bill Clinton a while.”
