You may or may not like Stephen Colbert or Vice President Joe Biden. But this interview Thursday night on Colbert’s late night show was unlike anything I’ve ever seen or expected on late night.
It ended with us not knowing yet whether Biden will decide to run for president (and I certainly understand that), but that really wasn’t the point. What impressed me throughout — what practically screamed at me — was the complete lack of such warmth, honesty, and heartfelt genuineness on the part of any other candidate currently in the race. Why can’t we have a candidate like this running for the presidency? Why must we choose from a ridiculously large field of prancing, posing, pontificating plastic puppets who wouldn’t share with us a genuine emotion if they had one?
I want a real man or woman in the White House, someone with heart and depth, care and concern, personal experience with the pain and difficulty and compromises of leadership. If there is such a person in today’s field of candidates, I’ve not seen him/her
