    But why didn't Max Cleland run again? Good diary and spirit, tomorrow is an important day and needs attencion!

    Meanwhile, Mr. McCain, the senior senator from Arizona, became the incredible shrinking man. (from the STL Post Dispatch's endorsement of Obama)

      So he's not totally out of the picture.

    •  Max Cleland is an advocate for veteran's issues (5+ / 0-)

      ... and campaigned for Democratic candidates, so he's still involved but in a different way.  Photos and story of Max Cleland here:

      Long diary, but important, short comments, but it shows how frustrating it is to be a former head of the Veteran's administration and have the current administration ignoring these current issues that the troops and veterans are facing now with traumatic brain injuries, PTSD,  and the high suicide rates.  But like I said at the time, meeting Max Cleland is an inspirational experience.  So at least we have gotten elected a Dem President and House/Senate majority.

      Saxby Chambliss is such a neocon chickenhawk swiftboating scumbag, I can't believe we couldn't get rid of him this cycle.  

      I am begging you, state of Georgia, get out there and do the right thing.
