For John, BLUF: I like Ryan for the big job. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I like Congressman Paul Ryan and here in The Washington Examiner is an example of why. He has the big picture.
Congressman Ryan makes the point that political progress is because a number of groups get together to achieve some common goals. If we were in Europe there would be a number of different political parties and they would form coalitions to achieve whatever they could agree to. We are blessed with a two party system and thus the coalitions are within our two parties.♠ We need to be looking for friends, not heretics.

♠ Yes, there are fringe parties, but they are at the fringe and while they provide a refuge, they don't provide political power.
