Former House Speaker New Gingrich (R-GA) said Sunday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will likely fade into a crowd of other Republican governors in the years to come and won’t become the leader of the Republican party.

“I think that she is going to be a significant player,” Gingrich said during CBS’s ‘Face the Nation.’ “But she’s going to be one of 20 or 30 significant players. She’s not going to be the de facto leader.”
