John Carona: Profile In Courage

The Dallas state senator has come into his own. He tops the “best” category in Texas Monthly’s biennial Best and Worst rankings, and for very good reasons. The senator surprised me from the very start (although I shouldn’t have been surprised at all) by opposing his own party’s ham-handed change of Senate rules to pass voter I.D., which he supports but not at the expense of overruling the customary privileges of the minority in the Senate (a move that will come back to haunt the GOP when it becomes the minority).  It’s tough being the lone voice of reason when the mob is screaming. For more on Carona’s excellent performance during the session, read the piece by Paul Burka and Patricia Kilday Hart.
