A piece of advice to all politicians: People will most likely respect a politician who’s honest about his fandom and sticks with it instead of a guy who waffles based on whoever’s doing well. Maybe you’ll be a fan of their rival, but at least they’ll thing your honest and not somebody who will put on whatever shirt will gain the most political favor.
