Re "A battle within for GOP seat" (Dan Morain, March 9): Dan Morain's whining that Rep. Tom McClintock stopped talking to him is disingenuous. Morain's mind has long been made up about Tom. So why waste the time?
I worked for Sen. Ed Davis at the same time as Tom. Ed reinforced our belief that integrity is gold. McClintock is one of the most honest, straight forward, you-see-what-you-get politicians in California. He is a straight up conservative.
As a Vietnam veteran, I appreciate Art Moore's service, but his belief system seems politically designed to have a little something for everyone. He is no conservative. As for his not voting, I don't buy the excuse. Voting is secret. I\t has nothing to do with an apolitical military. Soldier or not, voting is a public duty.
