  •  Nice to see you Governor! (10+ / 0-)

    We've met a few times, but the one that stays with me is when you kicked off your last campaign in our little town of Wyandotte, on the Detroit River, and sang "Happy Birthday" to my daughter! It was a highlight for her, and she's been an activist ever since. You never know how what you do may touch someone's life...thank you for that.

    I was so proud of Nancy Pelosi at her presser for the reasons you stated, and also for somehow managing to do a pretty fair job of herding the cats. We're lucky to have her right where she is.

    As for the quote, my favorite, I didn't know that Bobby Kennedy used it. I've always attributed it to Martin Luther King Jr., and just learned that he borrowed it from a 19th century minister, Theodore Parker --- but all of us should make those words our own, especially during the dark times.

      I'm seeking to organize DKos members in SE Michigan--roughly, from the Ohio line at Lake Erie NE to Port Huron, W to Flint and back S from there. If you'd like to join our new group, Motor City Kossacks (working title), please Kosmail me.

          from Monday. My, but it's easy to lose track around here, at least for me. Hope all's well there too & that we get that chat time soon. Huggs!
