It’s refreshing to hear someone say: “This is the Sully I know. I always knew this is how he would react. So to me, this is not something unusual. It’s the man I know to be the consummate professional. We are all very proud.”

Compared with: “This is not the ________ I know” statements following 15-20 year associations.

The difference between true integrity and political convenience is stark, isn’t it?
