Don't Play It At All, Sam

Alas, poor Brownback; we hardly knew him. He will reportedly quit the race tomorrow.

I interviewed Brownback a couple of times. He's always struck me as a decent, straightforward guy (though certainly more doctrinaire conservative than I). He was one of the few Republicans truly interested in foreign policy in areas other than the Middle East (and Mexico) -- notably, Africa. Unfortunately, he just didn't have the ability to turn his intellectual pursuits and basic decency into a compelling campaign message.

So it goes.
