ABC's Vargas Asks if Gingrich is 'Fit to Be President'

On Tuesday's Good Morning America on ABC, during an interview with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, substitute host Elizabeth Vargas singled out GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich as she asked if the former House Speaker is "fit to be President." Vargas:

And right now, one of the leaders in the polls is Newt Gingrich. It's no secret that many of the Republican Congressmen who served with Mr. Gingrich do not think that he is fit to be President. Do you think he is fit to be President?

As Priebus defended Gingrich's ability to serve as President, he hit President Obama's short list of qualifications before he was elected, and the President's performance while in office.
