I watch election coverage in Massachusetts and I am flabergasted! Why would anyone in Massachusetts-a normally liberal and progressive majority- be losing a race to fill the late Senator Kennedy's seat? While the rest of America's progressives revere Senator Kennedy for all his selfless hard work for civil equality and healthcare for all...the people that have the power of their vote to fill his seat with a Democrat that stands for the same ideals are sitting idle letting the Republican take the lead.
I think many Democrats and Independents have very short memories.
Did we just get enamored of the idea of a black president or do we stand for the ideals that make us proud to carry the name Democrat?
Have we forgotten what we stand for?
Less war...more money for the poor.
Smart government with less waste.
Government that works for the middle class and gives less "gifts" to the wealthy.
Senators that see themselves as public servants instead of "glory hogs"?
