  •  Terrific!!! Thanx, Bill!!! (10+ / 0-)

    You've been fantastic throughout in every way, Bill, and now you leave us w/a pretty darn good piece of "Seussery" to carry us thru these last couple of days!!!

    Keep it up, Bill, and please know you've got some Zonies really pulling for you.  I think we're on the verge of excorsizing our Demon, Foghorn, and hope you can polish off yours!!!

    Go, Bill!!!!!

      It's been a long year, and not always an easy one, but the things we are fighting for are so important.

      We need to remember we are all on the same team--America!

      And inside the Democratic Party we need to be reminded of that sometimes too!

      It's going to be a great year, and win or lose, we all have to keep up the fight long after election day.

      Ghandi said that the reason he took on fights that he couldn't win was that some day, someone WOULD win, and at least in part because of what he did when all seemed hopeless.

      Fight the fights that need fighting! Tilt at windmills if need be.

      The world needs heroes and you are one of them!

        We've had so little to inspire us over the past 6 years, and all the Republicans have offered us is a diet of fear, terror, and self-obssessed greed.

        Tax cuts. Restrictions. Spying. And they offer these as Good Things we should rejoice over.

        No, but it's words like yours, a vision of a country restoring its values and ideals and a government that works for the people's interest, that I've been longing to hear. Only Democrats have them - you all deserve to win and you'll have our full support when you do.

        Go Bill!

        Every day's another chance to stick it to The Man. - dls.

          Hope is the one thing, the one powerful immutable thing, that I really have to offer to people. I'm not a policy wonk. I'm not a guy with an immediate and polished answer to every question.

          But by god I will lead, and right into the fire if needed. I can always find people smarter than me to inform me on policy.

          But what we really need in America right now is leaders!

          People who say things like "Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country" and then really mean it!

          So if I've given you hope, then I've done my job, and now you have to go do yours, which is to pass that hope on to others, and work hard to make sure the vision we see gets turned into reality!

        You are the hero!!!  I couldn't say all of these good things about you unless I truly believed them, and I do!!!  As a great friend once told me, "No more than your hand calls for!"

        God Bless you for taking on a truly bad guy in a truly tough district.  I hope Tuesday brings you the victory you so richly deserve, but you'll be my hero either way.  You've poured yourself into this big challenge, and I think you'll ultimately find yourself a little surprised at how much you've learned and gained from the whole process.  

        Just know that I'll really be pullin' and prayin' for you, and I'll tell you what--should we ever get the chance to meet up, at least the first two beers are on me!!!
