Charles Krauthammer dies at 68

While I didn't always agree with his commentary, I always thought he had a fair voice in things that affect our lives. He was an amazing person IMO and the world will be the worse off without him. He was definitely a class act IMO in a world where most don't meet that mark.

RIP Charles Krauthammer, I will miss your thoughts!

Juan seemed a little left on middle of the road 6 to 8 years ago but then, seemed to turn pretty hard left. I think someone must have told him that to be one of the far left spokespersons and to keep making the big money, he had to be farther right. Some of his leftist arguments don't even make sense.

I can honestly say, he had a huge influence on the way I view politics and life. To be dealt such a bad hand and still have so much influence on political thought is amazing. Lately I had not agreed with him as much, but he earned my respect enough for me to pay attention to him and consider his points. I will miss his contributions to journalism.

I disagree with Juan, but still like him. He doesn't get personal and after "lively" discussion, can remain friends with his conservative counterparts.
