A "take away" from John's areticle might be this. Never elect ANYONE to public office who has never done anything constructive in his entire life. Rather elect experience.
For example, neither Ted Kennedy nor Barrack Obama EVER did anything other than fill an elected office.
And hos in the world did the Twit Anthony Wiener ever get elected to anything? Watch and listen to the guy 30 seconds and you know how asinine he is from the get-go. He never did anything either.
