and by god he walks right into it like a 3rd grader. I saw the interview. When the abortion question was posed I thought that Aiken would respond by saying something like …look Charles, my position on life is well known, but this election is about the economy and a president and a Missouri senator who have no economic common sense, and on in this vein. Instead, he launched into the now famous answer he will be known for until the end of time. I almost fell out of my chair. I guess the case can be made that his answer has some merit in light of some obscure statistics (I guess) but so what!

He chose not to exercise that option because in his mind (apparently) it is about him. He must demonstrate that he is not a quitter. Well, he has made his point – and McCaskill is smiling.

A French proverb declares: “What is hard to endure is sweet to recall.” I seldom agree with the French, but, as a former professional boxer, I know this to be true.

In 2003 I was fighting Cuban heavyweight Roberto Valdez before thousands at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion. Valdez was big, strong and mean. I was told that, a few years earlier, he had traversed shark-infested waters, alone, on a rickety makeshift raft to enjoy freedom in the land of the free.
