Newt Gingrich Running For President: Who Should He Pick As His Running Mate? (SLIDESHOW)

We hope you've been listening to Blind Melon's "No Rain" and arguing about who your favorite "Real World New Yorker" is (Julie, duh!) because with Newt Gingrich unofficially-officially running for president, we're pretty sure it's about to be the '90s all over again.

Take a look at our top picks for the Gingrich ticket, and let us know who you think he should run with in the comments.
