No, I don't despise him because he's with the wrong political party, or I think he is doing a good job. In fact, I think he's been doing a good job.
I'm happy because of why he's not running for a 3rd term. He says it's time for him to go back to private life and let some one else represent.
I wish all politicians would do that. Run for election, serve, leave office after a term or two.
