If you remember reading my list for the 1001 day project, you may remember that one of my goals was to learn a new word every week and blog about it. I signed up for a Word of the Day email from dictionary.com and I plan on reporting to you each Wednesday's Word.
Today's word is:
Candor \ noun
1. honesty in giving one's view or opinion; frankness and sincerity
2. fairness; impartiality
What remains to be seen is whether the candor he offered in his early memoir will be greeted with a new-style acceptance by voters.
