Perhaps most striking, though, is [Dr. Paul] Farmer’s insistence that his optimism is, in fact, logical.  “When you settle on a problem, devote the resources to it and have at least some ability to incorporate new information, every time, it gets better,” he says.  “I don’t have any experience, anywhere, where you just apply yourself, along with others, and then do not see progress.  My optimism has pretty honest roots.
“Although,” Farmer adds after a brief pause, “I would probably be an optimist even if not.”

The reality of his candidacy comes through as a kind of humility bordering on fatalism.  Before sitting down for a beer with TIME, Ryan fielded questions from potential Iowa caucusgoers gathered on the brewery’s concrete floor.  “This will not be easy,” Ryan told his crowd.  “I’m not a superstar.  I’m not a savior.  I will tell you I will jump in the foxhole with you, and we will get this done.  We are smart enough, we are creative enough, we are courageous enough, to pull this off.  But it will be a long slog.”

“People ask me what I want to be remembered for;  and I generally say peace and human rights,” he says.  “I think it’s a basic right of a human being to have a home that’s decent in which to raise children, and to have an adequate amount of health care and to have an adequate amount of education to take advantage of whatever talent God may have given them.”
