James Gilmore is the real deal

Earlier today I attended a weekly conservative blogger’s briefing, and today’s guest was former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, now running for president. It was the second small gathering (the first off the record) with Gilmore that I have attended in the past two months. I wanted to see if my first impressions (or, rather, second impressions; Gilmore and I lived in the same apartment building for a while last year) would be confirmed during the on-the-record meeting.
