I, a 2008 McCain voter, found myself in a position similar to that of Elizabeth Bennett as she was contemplating Fitzwilliam Darcyâ€™s portrait, as a son, husband, father, friend, businessman, governor, â€œhow many peopleâ€™s happiness were in his guardianship! – How much of pleasure or pain it was in his power to bestow! – How much of good or evil must be done by him!â€ Increasingly, I came to realize that the man not only can be trusted but that he did not have â€œany inappropriate prideâ€ but just enough to make sure he achieves his goals without sacrificing his honor. As in Darcyâ€™s case, by his deeds you shall know him.
