Matt Drudge yesterday reported that when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer gave Don King a chance to admit less enthusiasm for George W. Bush than he might have previously had, the famous boxing promoter responded, “I want to support him more now….I think he’s a president that cares about the people he represents, but doesn’t compromise himself to the extent that he acquiesce[s] and accommodate[s]…. George Walker Bush is a tremendous advocate to America, a great president for the great American people, and he’s decisive. He’s doesn’t equivocate.”

Because as an expert on the world of fighting, King knows you don’t call a fight until it’s over. As well, he knows a winner when he sees one. King’s statements are all the more appreciated because he chose not to get in on kicking Bush when he’s down–like animals going after the wounded–the way that both Democrats and Republicans have been doing since the election.

And that makes Don–at least for this distressed damsel–King King.
