  •  He reminds me of Humphrey (7+ / 0-)

    Obviously not a current politician, but having watched both of them campaign, they both brought the same infectious joy, the optimism in face of tough odds, and the ability to inspire and relate to ordinary people.

    I'm not the first one to note the similarities between Hubert Humphrey and Jack Layton, but somehow today the comparison seems especially on target.

    Once social change begins,it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read...You cannot oppress people who are not afraid anymore.
