  •  Yes, he did. Allegedly. (6+ / 0-)

    I still reserve judgment a bit, because too many such "conversions" are entirely opportunistic.  And it does not excuse his earlier behavior.

    But Mr. Hood was a better man, and was willing to extend far more than the benefit of the doubt, so I'll do likewise, doubts aside.

    •  I was surprised by that situation. (0+ / 0-)

      His initial pretense rang hollow. 7 years after being paralyzed, he really seemed to have seen the light, and I had been an RN for 2 years. The toll of paralysis and pain can teach many lessons that have been presented and failed before.

      At that point his political career was over and somehow I found it believable, really weird after all the years I had loathed him.
