Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken to the floor and is mounting a real-live filibuster. It was 1993. I was in grad school at LSU. Best friend was a dude from Vermont. Yankees down south stick together :).

I took a train up there to see him one summer, reading One Hundred Years of Solitude twice, once each way. Coolest state I've ever been to. By far the coolest. His mother was an elected official, heck she ran the Senate. I have always been a liberal, but I spent many hours talking to her and she make me MORE liberal.

You go Bernie, you go! If I could I'd be standing behind you itching to talk for a few hours. I've been known to talk awhile ....

Some motivation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
