Stephanie Cutter and S.E. Cupp host Crossfire tonight at 6:30pm ET. Tune in!
Former Speaker of the House and host of CNN’s Crossfire, Newt Gingrich takes us through his experience negotiating a way out of a government shutdown, arguing that a shutdown of the U.S. government isn't a unique situation.
When negotiating the way out, talking is one of the most important factors, he says. Gingrich explains that he and Clinton spent many long hours discussing and listening to each other’s point of views.
Gingrich also suggests for our current leaders to start with what they do agree on to build momentum, otherwise you will “crash and burn” on the more complicated issues.
