Nagin and History

From Gambit
Why does a politician with charisma to burn waltz across the public stage, changing like a chameleon and tossing verbal hand grenades like some Comedy Channel wannabe?

This article is charitable towards Nagin, which is shocking. When you read it, you'll see why.

Nagin will probably end up in the trash heap of history. Right next to Marrion Barry and David Dinkins...

UPDATE- I was thinking it over and there is one thing good I get from the article. The next mayor should be selected based off their ability to get on their knees and beg for assistance from the state and the feds.

I think the community leaders interviewed for the article are kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Too critical and they are criticized for betrayal of a certain kind. Not critical enough and they are backing an idiot.

Either way, everyone loses, and Nagin ends up in a trash compactor.

I wonder how Mr. Jackson has enjoyed hopping in bed with people of Ashton O'Dwyer's ilk.
