    I'm a pretty thorough collaborator with people I work with.

    Yea, I'm convinced that team chemistry depends on competence. The last thing I want on a team is a parasite who simply puts other people's ideas together.

    The fun part of belonging to a team is putting those ideas together yourself with the other person. Formulating ideas together is what creates identity.

    If someone intermediates, it defeats and ruins the purpose.

    Re: collaboration or competition

    I'm a natural collaborator. I do that first, but if someone seems to be thwarting or stymieing the goal, I will compete to ensure the best out come. But that's rarely necessary.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I had the kind of job that I couldnt characterize as any one or two approachs when dealing with people.

    If im dealing with a good citizen which is the lionshare..I collaborate with them...If they are not so nice...its always a confrontation.
