Is Don Draper a good person?

Mrs. RR and I watched the final episode of Season 4 of Mad Men last night (we'd been behind since I went to South Dakota last fall and just caught up). My wife has really soured on Don towards the end of the most recent season and we've been having a number of discussions about whether or not Don is "a good person" (whatever that means). Don's faults seem pretty easy to see starting with the fact that he wasn't a faithful husband. Certainly, he didn't treat Faye well. However, he seems to have a number of good qualities. Or does he? When my wife spoke that she was anti-Don, I was surprised, but maybe that's just because I haven't paid attention. Possible positives: he's a decent, if distant father (by the standards of the time) and he shows a fair amount of sympathy for others, especially compared to some of his peers (or am I misreading that).
