  •  forgot to mention my MA cred (6+ / 0-)

    Spent a couple of years as a grad student at UMass, so I wasn't all that sure there was any of MA east of 495.  (just kidding)

    I'm proud to say that one of the two Republicans I've ever voted for was Silvio O. Conte.  Would that about 3/4 of today's Congressional Democrats were as liberal as Silvio Conte.

      was the only Congressman I had growing up.   He became simply my idea of what a congress member should be, responsive to everyone in his district regardless of their political affiliation, interesting, open-minded, a bit of a showman and an absolute pit bull when it came to constituent services.  Any problems anyone in the district ever had with any govt agency, you just went to Silvio and problem solved.
