Notes Announcing his campaign for the U.S. Senate, Ryan said his campaign is "about happiness . . .not only happiness for yourself but happiness to making other people fulfilled in their own lives."

"Young. Rich. Three Ivy League degrees. Articulate. Tall and handsome in a way that recalls JFK Jr. Not particularly outspoken on any hot-button issues, but so dedicated to the idea of helping others that he dropped out of the investment banking world several years ago to teach full-time at an inner-city high school." - Eric Zorn

"The establishment candidate, Jack Ryan, not only is charismatic but carries superb credentials." - Thomas Roeser

Divorced from TV star Jeri Lynn Ryan (Star Trek, Boston Public)

Buzzword - Happiness, says Republicans need to talk about it more.
