“Bolder?” Compared to what? His Mr. Cellophane first term? The next time he’s bold as Governor about anything will be the first time he’s been bold about anything as Governor, and the first time he’s been bold about anything since school deseg, and that was his first term as AG (1992-6).
Then again, Missouri Governor isn’t exactly known as a Mr. Excitement. (Hint: John Ashcroft was a two-termer in that office.) It’s more a place where excitement and ambition goes to die. Warren Hearnes was the last time we had anything close to a colorful resident of 100 Madison.
