Michael D Higgins

President Higgins is a humane warm man who has a searing honesty of
purpose. I know him since about 1981 and he is the ultimate political
climatologist. He used to soar into the stratosphere of rhetoric and
generate much hear and emotion on many issues. But he was visionary as
Minister for the Arts in the 90s. His poetic temperament was obvious
to those with soul. I wish him well – His country needs his spirit at
this time.
