    I live in the NW so I have little opportunity to know much about his background, this was a wonderful complilation.

    The thing that stood out to me was the line about refusing to partner with the Irish political machine. I would like to think that I would have such faith in conviction and yet it would be so seductive to rationalize oneself into thinking "I can't do any good unless I get elected - once elected then I will work toward what I really want."

    It seems self-evident that he realized that once you have sold your soul, you no longer own that part of you which motivated your ideals.

    He has my respect.

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.
