25. Others would do well to follow his example.
Democrats want to be engaged by the people they vote for and support. There's a tendency of modern politicians to keep voters at a distance, where the distance protects the politician from hearing things they don't like hearing.

This kind of opportunity for interaction affords some ability to have a comfortable distance, yet respond to those with questions.

Congratulations to all involved. I hope to see more of this.
