  •  Tell it, Rep. Woolsey! (10+ / 0-)

    I am going to miss her in office. I've voted for her since the '90's. She's the reason that I turned out to vote, if I remember, in the first election I ever voted in... pretty sure of that. She made me see something in politicians that I hadn't seen before: a sense of social justice and a willingness to work with those on the far Left, to hear the activists speak. I felt like she was one of the very few politicians who was qualified to speak on my behalf. Her words on Afghanistan are very appreciated, and I'm sad to see her go. In my view, she's irreplaceable.

    She would often take the time to write personal mail back if you sent her a letter with direct responses to your original mail so that you knew it wasn't a form letter. She really did her constituents good, by and large.

    Sorry to go off-track from Afghanistan. There, Lynn speaks for me too. I didn't vote for her time and again for her not to.
