Straight Talking

I've become increasing ly impressed with Jimmy Carter over the past year or so. He seems to be the only high profile individual getting his hands dirty trying to arrange some sort of peace deal in the middle east.

I'm so impressed that he answers straight questions with straight answers like today when he spoke of Israel's Nuclear arsenal.

It's a real shame that active politicians can't be statemen in the same way. I think we need politicians to take a risk. It's not all about getting re-elected. It's about doing what's right.

Do we have any Irish Politicians that could fall into this category? Answer on a postcard...
