  •  I deeply admire his comeback (3+ / 0-)

    He was toast after his Senate term, the only sign of political acumen he showed was to decline a doomed reelection attempt.

    And I rolled my eyes when I learned early on he was running for Governor!  Really, a guy who was so unpopular as a Senator thinks he can get elected Governor, a job to which voters hold higher standards than for a Senate seat?!

    But he ran a great campaign, he won in a very tough year, and he was tough when it mattered and was smart enough to compromise and make a deal when he had to.  He got the politics and timing right.

    Maybe he hasn't been perfect, but he's truly made the best of a tough situation, which is not something anyone normally should expect of someone who previously in his career made the worst of a much easier situation.
