Good points. Rather than listening to experts with axes to grind, one needs to find out the source and learn for oneself the matter. Rahul Gandhi is under appreciated, a rare phenomenon even among the Congress culture to look upon Gandhi family scions. Yet, in terms of intellectual output, empathy, politics, people skills, and above a GOOD man, being a Mister Dependable, he is a titan, no less!
In my assessment, Rahul is the prime minister we never had till now, but we deserve him. And he, us. Time will tell.
