As a leader and a candidate for governor, Jack Markell is a class act. In the recent debate on environmental issues, he had numerous opportunities to slam his opponent, who made unfortunate claims for himself and against Markell.

Instead, with characteristic intensity, Markell laid out his agenda for transforming the quality of life in Delaware. He demonstrated his signature leadership skills: a big-picture mind with a mastery of the details of public policy.

Significantly, Markell chose not to engage in a contest for bragging rights on bringing wind power to Delaware – though he well might have, since he was an originator and driving force of the effort. Instead, he credited the audience of citizen activists for the achievement and vowed to make Delawareans an active partner in his administration.

Undistracted by campaign noise, Markell continues to run a campaign of ideas.
