From Thursday night's Power Panel on Current TV's The Young Turks, C&L's own managing editor Tina Dupuy joined Think Progress' Zaid Jilani and The Huffington Post's Zach Carter to discuss whether Newt Gingrich is going to quit throwing bombs into the GOP presidential primary race with his attack ads on Mitt Romney.

Can you help us out?
