My dear friends Dan Rather is one of my heroes in life. He was born and raised in Houston. He started at KHOU television in Houston and was promoted to CBS News. When Walter Cronkite retired as the anchor of the CBS evening news, Dan took his place. He won honors and the respect and love of millions of people who depended on him every day for the news and an idea of what is going on in the world. He also showed himself to be a brilliant analyst of politics.
Yesterday after noon he was talking about Donald Trump. He described him as the most bizarre candidate that he had encountered in many decades of covering presidential elections. He went on to praise Trump as a master of the electronic media who constantly gets attention that puts Hillary in the background or out of sight and mind.
Dan's message was clear: "Like him or hate him, do not under estimate Donald Trump!"
