The name John Sears means little to those unfamiliar with politics.
He ran Ronald Reagan's 1976 Presidential Campaign and part of the '80 race.
His quote carries weight to it, regardless of politics, parties or personalities.
It is about perseverance.
"There's something about losing and coming back from it that burns character into a man's soul, breeds confidence without arrogance, and makes a man believable when he talks about problems." -John Sears, R.R. Campaign Manager
A tip o' the hat to Lue for the quote.
