Seriously. He appears to take being a Senator with utmost gravitas. You'd almost think he views the public weal as something sacred.

The horror!

I knew he would be great. He is also going to be great on financial issues. He has a sharp mind when it comes to numbers.

Yeah, they dismissed him as a comedian and underestimated him. Even on SNL you could see the intelligence he carried. Fearless, nothing to prove, fighting for things to be right and a defender of women...Love this man

Harvard doesn't graduate dummies.

I met him at a fund raiser at Paul Simon's house when Durbin was making his first Senate run. I don't even recall what year that was, maybe the summer of 2000.

I knew he was sharp but it's really wonderful to see what a powerful voice he wields in hearings like this. I may have to reassess my dislike of all things senatorial.
