Maggie, Very nice column. I had a different reaction to the booing incident, though. There’s obviously nothing wrong with sticking up for your position and getting booed. Rick is a gutsy politician and we don’t want that to change. But I think he needs to be more careful in honoring the difference between being a candidate for president of the United States and being, say, a graduate teaching assistant for Robby George. Trying to engage in Socratic dialogues with college students on hot-button issues is not going to convince them and is not going to help him.
