John Crowley is an impressive man

The Cure Book tells the story of how Crowley raised $100 million and bucked the medical establishment in a quest to save his children.

The following excerpt choked me up:

“Your daughter is some little fighter,” Dr. Hofley said softly, shaking his head and looking from John Crowley to his wife, Aileen. “I wish she would just close her eyes and rest, but she’s determined to stay awake.”

As they entered the hospital’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, John and Aileen saw Megan lying on her back, her eyes open, scanning the room. Her eyes settled on them and immediately filled with tears. Aileen rushed over to kiss her.

John, still incredulous that Megan had lived through the morning, rubbed her matted hair gently. “All right, kid,” he said, staring gravely into her big dark eyes. “If you want to fight, we’ll fight too.”

If the reports that Crowley is entering the Senate are true, New Jersey voters will be proud of him, inspired by him, and vote for him. If the Lautenberg sleaze machine can find any dirt on Crowley, it will pale in comparison to his heart, his accomplishments and his military service.

This guy appears to be heads and shoulders above any candidate in the race and any New Jersey office holder in recent memory at any level.

Where's he been?

I'm a little uneasy about someone who has to be talked into running for office at the last minute.

I don't doubt or put down his life experiences, but I wonder if he really wants to be a Senator.
