    Nothing better defines what it means to be a Democrat--and why the Republican world view is not only unjust, but immoral--than Hubert Humphrey's famous speech from shortly before he died, where he said, "the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped." (Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey, November 1, 1977.)  Romney/Ryan's willingness to completely "ignore" these people is despicable.  This ad helps make the point, but I think Obama could do more to highlight the idea that, like the nuns on the bus say, the values being expressed by Romney and Ryan are un-American, un-Christian (despite their pandering piety), and simply wrong.
