Not maybe. I’ve known him for more than a decade, never well. I don’t believe we’ve had a conversation longer than 10 minutes. I really don’t have any strong sense of the guy. But he already seems to be drawing support a cut above what you’d expect for such a previously low-profile figure. This is, for instance, perhaps the first time since 2002 that Tim Murphy and Percy Downe have agreed on anything.
AUTRE-LANGUE UPDATE: He talks a good game.
