Lots else to talk about, but in the meantime, read this really terrific profile of John Boehner. A decent, sensible guy.

(Well, yes, of course, we do: but our basic premises include fairness, opportunity, inclusion, community, and investing in the future . . . so that gives us a head start.

Read about John Boehner and try not to like him. I don’t think you’ll be able to.
