Mike DeWine Gushes Over Ted Kennedy
He wrote a long column in the Dayton Daily News about how wonderful Sen. Kennedy was. This passage jumped out at me:
He taught me persistence — not to go away, to keep coming back. You may only get one-third of the loaf in the first go-around, but that’s OK. You have to be in it for the long haul and come back the next year for another third.
Translation: Sen. Kennedy taught me that when you can’t remain in the US Senate after spending YEARS there damaging the Republican brand, come back for 1/3rd the loaf (run for Attorney General) before getting the full loaf (becoming Governor).
It is obvious that the DeWine pest won’t go away, but who knew we had Ted Kennedy to blame for his persistence?
Considering their close friendship, I wonder if DeWine ever joined Kennedy for dinner and a waitress sandwich.
