Dungy-Manning White House


Colts Coach Tony Dungy is perhaps the most honorable and decent man in his profession. He's respected league-wide and clearly knows how to lead. He's a man of great faith but does not impose his beliefs on others. He's a unifier, motivator and steady of will. He perseveres in times of crises and usually finds a way to make his team better.

Peyton Manning has shown an aptitude for making quick and smart decisions. He too is a leader on and off the field. He knows how to handle pressure and come out a winner.

Dungy would have a strong appeal among minorities and would do well courting evangelicals, especially in middle America. Manning meantime could carry the south. He is after all a hero in Tennessee.

Talk about a dream ticket. With the way the Colts have been playing this season, maybe Dungy and Manning are thinking about their next career moves. Why not politics?

Except those times where he came out against inter-racial relationships due to a TO MNF ad I agree with you.
