Whatever your political affiliation, there's one thing everyone ought to be able to agree upon: There's a lot of vitriol on both sides of the aisle. And that's exactly why New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady eschews any political aspirations.
On Monday night, Brady did an interview with Jim Gray and Westwood One in which he touched on a number of subjects. First and foremost was Hurricane Sandy, the devastation it caused and the emotional impact of playing sporting events in the immediate wake of such disasters. Brady compared it to playing in the 2002 Super Bowl just months after 9/11.
Perhaps the most interesting comments from Brady, however, were on his (lack of) political aspirations. In short, it seems Tom Terrific has too much integrity to lower himself to the seemingly necessary partisan bickering.
"I follow it relatively closely," Brady said. "I enjoy watching, kind of, the banter that goes back and forth. I don't think I'll ever get into politics. Maybe at one point I thought that might be something I want to do, but I think you take a step back and you realize the impact that you can have as a citizen."
Also, Brady pointed out what most people on both sides of the spectrum believe nowadays: that politics are so polarized that it makes it difficult to get anything done.
"Well I think it's just the frustration between both parties that have really been polarizing with one another to -- from my perspective -- not always do what's in the best interest of the country. And to fight just to fight. And maybe that's the way it's always been. I don't believe that's the way it always has to be."
