It is nice, John, to see that those who once spoke ill of Tony Snow now see him in all his handsomeness and decency. Best I know, he was always a kind and noble soul, whether coming over at a political convention just to say hello or proudly bringing his shy teenage daughter to a Christmas party at the White House. As well as anyone, Quin Hillyer understood Tony’s rare and inspiring appeal (a column that received rowsing reader approval). Now, as always, Bill McGurn captures most astutely the real reason why he was a political and human success: “Tony did his job with more flair than almost any press secretary before him. He loved the give-and-take. But that was possible only because Tony was a man of substance who had real beliefs and principles that he was more than able to defend.”
