Governor Corzine’s speech upon discharge from Cooper University Hospital was passionate — not in a cheesy, opportunistic way, but rather in an authentic and unmistakably human way. His voice quaked with emotion as he apologized for setting a bad example for our State’s youth and adults by not wearing a safety belt. He thanked his family and his supporters with a sincerity that is sorely missing in politics. He then asked our residents for forgiveness in a manner that would be difficult for even the most die-hard anti-Corzine person to dismiss. In that short five-minute speech, Governor Corzine revealed more of himself than our residents have seen during his first years in office. It revealed a Governor who has feelings and emotions and who is a genuine individual just like you and me.
