    Dolph Briscoe was an old-fashioned, Texas style, self-described conservative Democrat.

    This is a great example of what we lost when most Anglos in Texas, and most whites in the South, left the Democratic Party.

    We need to remember that a big tent includes many people and politicians we may often disagree with, but who are usually with us on the most important issues when the chips are down.

      That big tent includes some people of strong character and principles, who happen to be a tad conservative.

      No problem; under promise, over deliver.

      Not Texas, but obviously standing for rule of Law, and principles that our nation was founded upon.

        But, I must admit, a man of priciple who would probably be classified as a pinko-liberal today.
