Happy He Lost

You know, I love stories like this:
Former cattle rancher, Wyoming governor, and US Senator Cliff Hanson, was one of the leading voices against the expansion of Grand Teton National Park in the 1940s. In the mid-1960s, at a luncheon in New York, he said:
I fought against the establishment of the Grand Teton National Park as hard as I could and I lost and I want you all to know that I'm glad I lost, because I now know I was wrong. Grand Teton National Park is one of the greatest natural heritages of Wyoming and the nation and one of our great assets.
I'd love to hear some of today's opponents of health care reform say the same kind of thing in twenty years.
So would I. But I somehow doubt today's Cons have his wit or class.
