105. Rising to the occasion
I've always respected the man, hell, I supported him early on...but while I doubted his ability to win nationally, my respect for him as a leader has grown enormously since the primaries.

This is a LEADER. He may not become our president, but he is a leader... we need him...desperately. I pray the DNC has the character to hire this character!
