This is getting absurd. <sarcasm> Why don't we debate Gingrich's skill at chess? I've always thought a good chess player, what with their complicated problem solving machinery and all, would have than enough intelligence in place to govern a nation. </sarcasm>

While I agree that it's nice for Congress to be forward-looking, it would be much nicer if he had more libertarian leanings than it would be that he be at Future Shock level 4. The future can take care of itself; all we want/need gov't to do is get out of the way!
