Congressman Grayson and Congressman Weiner ........
Advertisements [?]
...... are two men currently high on my "Admire" list, both for pretty much the same reason: their stance on health care and their unwillingness to stand meekly and go along to get along.

Both men have command of facts. Both men are fearless in standing down the opposition. Both men seem prepared to metaphorically "fight to the death" to see real health care reform happen.

But I see a clear difference in style. Mr Weiner is more cerebral. Mr Grayson is more in your face.

Which do you prefer? Who do you think is more effective?
