    Which Newt Gingrich would show up? That was the question on most people’s minds — OK, mine — as we waited for him to appear at a town hall event at St. Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics Wednesday evening. Would it be the calm, above-the-fray political sage that Gingrich has lately tried to will himself into being? Or the partisan bomb-thrower of yore that we all know from the 1990s?

The sharp words against Mitt Romney, a multimillionaire many times over who is in strong contention to win Iowa, come two days before voters here weigh in on the Republican field. It was part of a stepped-up effort by Gingrich to contrast himself with Romney, and the candidate said he would adopt an even more aggressive strategy when the race moves to New Hampshire,...
