6. He is very intelligent and he has a moral center.
We haven't seen someone with a real moral center in the Presidency since Jimmy Carter.

But he is not acting in accord with it. He has overemphasized bipartisanship to the peril of his presidency and the welfare of the country. It hangs around his neck like a millstone. He needs to bring his actions into accord with his values... if he can... if its not too late.
