BLITZER:  But you will concede that Rick Santorum has a better chance than you do?

GINGRICH:  But he doesn’t have a guaranteed lock anymore than I do or Romney does.  You have a whole new conversation if we end up on the 27th of June with no one having 1,144 votes.
BLITZER:  Are you at all worried about your legacy, your reputation?

GINGRICH:  No.

Look, first of all, I wasn’t worried last June, which you remember well, Wolf, when almost everybody in the media said I was dead.  It didn’t worry me a bit because I knew it wasn’t true.
