no... I just don't think so. I keep going back to his losing his temper and mooning his players. Plus, he kept losing his temper and almost seeming unhinged at one point. Just not a guy that I think make you want to follow him. He has the passion, etc but I do not think he would be able to win many chess matches against OCs, nor do I see him as an innovator. His biggest asset is as you say, his passion. I may be wrong, I just would rather not go with someone who so flagrantly flamed out in such a high profile manner.
