If this country had more politicians like Bob Riley, well, we'd have fewer like Roy Moore. This man deserves to be re-elected. This is why I'm not a Democrat - I'd end up having to support the downfall of a truly principled and pragmatic leader solely because he has the wrong letter after his name. It's also why I'm not a Republican, because I'd have to make excuses for someone who sees religion and deep faith as a political tool for career advancement. Not unlike Osama bin Laden.
In general though, the Republican Party is a far more hostile place for principled people.
