As Democrats including President Clinton and members of Congress try to project a moderate image to attract so-called mainstream voters, some in the electorate are confused about where the two parties actually differ and question if it even matters whether Democrats or Republicans are at the helm. But Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says the differences between the two major parties are stark. At a major Republican fundraiser in Washington earlier this month, Gingrich predicted a tough battle this fall and told the audience what he thinks the 1996 elections are all about.
