Some handle it gingerly, with a simple “No comment.”
Others play it coy, while some feign abashment.
But never risk admission
While masking naked ambition,
And always, always deny you’re running for president.

And he’s backing off from Ayn Rand’s Objectivism.
He’s shed Aqua Buddha,
And his old man Ron, too, ta
Hitch his star to something he calls Conservative Realism.
