My impression of Thad was quite uninformed, but he did seem like a bright and interesting person.
I must concur with his conclusions regarding the nastiness of politics in this day-and-age.
I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
I like smart people to be involved in politics, but sometimes this attribute comes with a certain
"quirkiness" which can cost the individual. Steve Forbes suffered from this, and we lost a chance
to see what he might have done to repair our situation.
