Letter to the Editor
I watched the first debate between the Democratic candidates for president tonight not expecting to change my mind or be impressed by anyone. One of the candidates, Mike Gravel, was a name I never heard before. Although I liked what everyone who I knew said, I was really impressed with this new guy because he gets it on the Iraq issue.
Mike Gravel fully understands that the war in Iraq wasn’t only a crime, but that Democrats need to take extreme measures to shut down the war and shut down the Bush administration now. Although he probably has zero chance of winning I was impressed enough to go to his web site to make a donation. Unfortunately his web site was so overloaded that I couldn’t get in. But I like what he said and I want to hear more of it.
And – it’s a name I can pronounce!
