Snippet from the profile from Sunday’s Trib:
"You’ve got to have a thirst for winning," he said. "You know what our party thinks? `We’re good people with good ideas. That’s just enough, isn’t it?’ Being tough enough, mean enough and vicious enough is just not what they want. . . . They just want to be patted on the back for the noble effort. No."
Then he began ranting about his conservative party colleagues. "They hate me too, because I’m arrogant and pushy with them. . . . Because they’ve never, ever WORKED! NOBODY! NONE OF ‘EM!"
