Thoughts on a Dem convention

I attended the WI Democratic convention today as a volunteer for The One Campaign to encourage folks to support the effort of ending poverty and AIDS.

Not exactly something people would oppose- but the herd mentality was in full force.
Sign the petition? What for? Ending poverty and AIDS. Sure! Who could refuse the effort? But all too often, the result was a discussion that blamed Bush and the GOP for not doing enough for others in the world. Uh huh.

Too often I heard President Bush's name in conversations around me, as I sat reading McCain's Faith of My Fathers. They can not let it go.

Look forward, folks. Your hatred won't change his legacy.
