That’s what Jodi Rell seemed to be saying in announcing her decision not to run for re-election.
Not that she’s sick of the process, sick of Democrats, sick of the media. She says it’s simply her “time”…her time to go.
Perhaps Jodi Rell’s greatest triumph was being our Jerry Ford after John Rowland resigned in disgrace. She made people feel better about the person in the office.
And even as the budget debacle continues on, her latest Q Poll approval rating is 59%, a remarkable number given recent events.
Rell and her husband have beaten health scares. They’re doting grandparents. Maybe they just want to quietly enjoy the rest of their lives.
How you feel about her governance and politics has nothing to do with this. Give her credit for knowing how and when to make a graceful exit.
So few do.
