    Best, not most polished 

    Who would you want negotiating with heads of state? I want the man who is going to lead by his conviction and not what a focus group says this week.I want a man who means what he says and follows through.I want the man who has been consistently tough with his defense policies.I don't care who delivers the MOST POLISHED message, but the BEST message.I DON'T want the man who has spent 20 years in the senate voting against every defense bill that came across his desk.I don't want the man who fought President Reagan in the Cold War.I don't want the man who voted to gut the CIA pre-9/11
