  2. I cannot imagine a more profoundly rewarding
    hour spent anywhere, or one more related to national
    and international issues. Our Independent US
    Senator Angus S. King proved himself to be exactly as he sees himself:
    “an applied historian with a minor in communication.”
    He is an astute student of human nature, too, and
    an eloquent champion of liberal arts education. No wonder that at least
    one member of the audience afterward
    was overheard asking Mr. King if he would ever consider running for president.
