I don't want someone whom fails at life to suddenly be driving the car..the log cabin politicians are not desirable...unless of course you want the decisionmaking of the average joe to be the route you want your district to take.

The face of external nature teaches the same lesson. Nature will not have us fret and fume. She does not like our benevolence or our learning much better than she likes our frauds and wars. When we come out of the caucus, or the bank, or the Abolition-convention, or the Temperance-meeting, or the Transcendental club, into the fields and woods, she says to us, 'So hot? my little Sir.'
