A smart man I could vote for

Just listened to the New Yorker Radio Hour podcast with Mr. Clyburn. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to his thoughts. The country needs more minds like his. Too bad I live in Colorado and am not able to vote for him. He gave me hope that Congress will not be stalemated forever.
