Brooks on John Thune
David Brooks has a great profile piece on John Thune (R-SD) in today’s New York Times. The part that excited me the most:
Thune also possesses the favored Republican profile du jour: conservative at the roots but pragmatic at the surface. Like McDonnell, nobody can question Thune’s conservative bona fides. As a result, he doesn’t have to talk about them. Instead, he prefers to talk about what he calls the “economic cluster” of issues: job creation, balanced budgets and small-business-led growth.
Now that’s my kind of Republican.
