Remembering Paul Wellstone

Today is the tenth anniversary of the day the country lost the great Paul Wellstone and Katrina vanden Heuvel has a tribute worth reading at the Washington Post.  

“It’s been ten years since we lost Paul Wellstone, a relentless champion, a true public servant and one of the very few social movement senators we’ve ever had. He was the first politician whose death made me weep. But in an era of craven compromises and bipartisan austerity, it seems almost unfair to call Paul Wellstone a politician at all.”

    I had the great honor to meet and talk with Sen. Wellstone when he was thinking about running for President. He chatted with me and a co-worker for over an hour, and he made you feel like you were the most important person in the world. He had the grace to write a wonderful note thinking “us” for spending time with him. We sure need more Paul Wellstones in this country.
    Thanks for the reminder.
