Here’s a video of Ryan from 1998 – after having just been elected to Congress – discussing his family and its history. I assume we will be hearing much more of this soon.
I thought this video was pretty compelling, showing the earnestness and sincerity that would win him the trust of his colleagues years later as a leader on tough issues like the budget, Medicare and Social Security.
I don’t think it will be easy to demonize this man. But Obama will try.
