Quote:"I'm a lot tougher than people think. I think the experiences that I've had in the last few months would demonstrate that. I think it's really a matter of style over substance. I do have a different style than some other people. That doesn't mean that I'm not tough. I'm certainly ready to take on this challenge and I'm ready to lead.
