Letters: A freshman's political IQ

January 26, 2013

Re "Patt Morrison Asks: Raul Ruiz, an Rx for D.C.," Opinion, Jan. 23

It was heartening to read the transcript of newly elected Rep. Raul Ruiz's (D-Palm Desert) interview with Patt Morrison.

Although Ruiz's academic credentials and medical background are impressive, his intelligent and perceptive answers are reassuring. Regardless of party affiliation, one can only wish that more like him are called to public service and that he doesn't get trapped in the seeming quagmire that congressional partisan politics have become.

Indeed, if Ruiz can survive the rigors of successive elections, maybe he can provide effective treatments for Congress' long-term disabilities.
