  •  People took "The Democratic Wing of the (4+ / 0-)

    Democratic Party" from Wellstone without crediting him. He meant it. I saw him on C-Span in his very first testing the waters in Iowa. He made the case, "National Security starts with a healthy, intelligent, self-confident citizenry. That's why my National Security Program makes sure that every single child within our borders, regardless of circumstance is offered the nutrition, the personal contact, the stimulation which every study says leads to such adults."

    paraphrased. And about 100x more powerfully expressed in his words, with his presence.

    To me, his death was a disaster for the United States. And I don't use the word lightly here.

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.
