      talking to everyone who wants to give him a piece of their mind? We live in a country of 300+ million people. There is structure and format to presidential conferences so as to make that reality manageable. Medea got to speak up, she was heard. But both people represent the tip of an iceberg of a popular support network. Both know this. They were both appealing to their bases as well as their own consciences.
