*Worked with Pentagon on force transformation issues from his earliest years as a Congressman.
*Longest serving teacher of the Joint War-Fighting course for Major Generals (started in 1987).

*Co-Chair of the United Nations Reform Commission.
*Member of the Hart-Rudman Commission on National Security/21st Century.

In the CNN poll, 36% said Gingrich is most qualified to be commander-in-chief, compared to 20% for Romney. And 25% said Gingrich is most likely to agree with them on the issues that matter most, compared to 18% for Cain and 16% for Romney.
