    George Allen would be a great Prez. Definitely in my Top 3.

    Being originally a Virginian, and biased in favor of my native state,
    I may look more closely and earlier at George Allen than at other
    possible Presidential candidates.

    I have to admit right off the bat I wish Allen’s style included some
    hint of the urbane scholarliness of Virginia’s greatest statesmen.

    I also have to admit I have had enough of cowboy boots and the
    Confederate flag, neither of which I saw hardly anything of in all
    the time I spent with family and friends in rural, south-of-the
    Rappahannock, Bedford, Virginia, between the time I was first there
    in 1950, and most recently there last month.

    Does anyone here know what Allen meant by this?-

    Jefferson said in his one published book:

    “I tremble for the future of my country when I consider
    that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.”


    Which is in line with what Mason said.
