Ask Rob McKenna a question on public policy, and you will have to sit still and listen closely. You are about to be flooded by pertinent observations, details, cause and effect, history, strategy, potential. Concentrate, because you might miss something.
There will be no words for the sake of words. There will be little or nothing that’s irrelevant or dishonest.

He also possesses the kind of energy and skills that will lead to accomplishment, not to partisanship and all its dead ends.
