He's got a very intense look to him, like his stare will burn a hole through your soul. I think our team needs a leader like O'Brien, someone who puts the team ahead of individuals, and who will hold people accountable.
That's what I mentioned earlier.
He comes across as a very direct, no-nonsense guy.
What you see is what you get.
He answers more questions than skirting around the issues.
(We all know that's there's a certain limit)... But when a guy hardly hesitates answering a tough question, you know he's comfortable in his own skin.
