Theodore Roosevelt Reisman has worked as the companion bear of Suzanne for approximately 20 years. His foray into political commentary was triggered by concern for his polar bear cousins, who are losing their arctic habitat at an alarming rate, which Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin denies. Theo hopes that he will not need to make a career as a protest companion bear, but is prepared to do so if necessary. This fall, he is rooting for his baseball brethren, the Chicago Cubs.
