Days Of Yore

Susie of Suburban Guerrilla reminds everyone of a time when members of Congress had spines.

My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total; and I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.

Barbara Charline Jordan

If you are too young, or have never heard Barbara Jordan speak, go to the link and listen, because they have the recording as well as the transcripts. She was a Congresswoman from Houston, Texas, and one of the greatest American speakers ever.

The Associated Press reports: Democratic Hopefuls Snub Party Moderates

Not a single one of the eight presidential candidates plans to attend the Democratic Leadership Council’s summer meeting, a snub that says less about the centrist DLC than it does about a nomination process that rewards candidates who pander to their parties’ hardened cores while ignoring everybody else.
