Jim Winter is a hell of a good writer, whose Road Rules made my highly-coveted (cough,cough) list of best reads for 2011. Jim’s an insightful gut and recently posted to his blog (Edged in Blue) something I wish I’d written. He says a lot of things I believe, and better than I have been able to.
He’s going to vote for Obama; I’m not. (I’m not going to vote for any of the current Republican crop, either. My vote is still
for sale available.) That’s not to say he’s not disappointed; his list of Obama’s failures—and failings—matches mine quite well. I could go on for a while, but do yourself a favor and read it for yourself. I can’t do it justice.
(Jim also does periodic capsule biographies that are as good and concise as anything you’ll find. Well worth checking out.)
