I didn't even think guys like this existed in real life. He's a former rodeo bull rider star who got his PhD from Yale in International Relations. He worked as a ranch hand to pay his way through college (he wrote his dissertation on The Atlantic West: Cowboys, Capitalists, and the Making of an American Myth). He speaks and cooks Italian. And he looks like a movie star.
Now he's running for Congress in Western Nebraska. Thank god he's a Democrat.
