I've said before that the term "political career" is an insult to those working men and women who are struggling to support their families.I don't really accept this frame that if you serve in public office for awhile, that you're doing something bad. Sometimes it takes a long time to get things done and being in elected office is service, not careerism. Especially what we're paying electeds nowadays.
But, either way, he's not applying. He would have been a good one, I think.
