Michael D Higgins has been very dignified throughout the campaign.
Many FG voters that I know voted for him and were happy to do so.
For Gay Mitchell, all I can say is I’m sorry for him. I know I have been there.
What is the message for Fine Gael. Firstly, I think that respecting the Presidency as a transendant office would be a good start.
Secondly, the last election result was a reflection of the public betrayal and obvious lack of competence of Fianna Fail. They just had to go and someone had to fill the gap.
