    My wife and I had the pleasure of getting to know Daniel (and his lovely young daughter, Alegra) on the National Review Cruise last November. He is brilliant and eloquent; Sandra wished he could end up as the British Prime Minister some day. (I mentioned that to Daniel, who laughed and said, “No, not likely.”) Thanks for posting this.
