Please. For the love of freedom, democracy, and our country I’m calling on all Democrats as patriots to stop eating our own and focus on defeating Trump. Why can’t we support our chosen primary candidate without tearing others down?
Joe Biden is not a racist. As many of you know, I interned for our late Senator Ted Kennedy. He addressed this issue regarding his relationship with Senator James Eastland of Mississippi, Chair of the Judiciary Committee, in his autobiography, True Compass: : “Eastland’s racial views posed a moral problem for me. Civil rights became one of the defining causes of my career. How could I seek guidance, or cooperate in any way, with a proponent of segregation?
My decision regarding Eastland —in fact, my guiding impulse to reach across lines of division during my career—took strength from the concluding phrase of Lincoln’s first inaugural address, on the eve of the Civil War. I decided to put faith in “the better angels of our nature.” I worked with James Eastland; in fact, the two of us became friends. Then and always, I would work with anyone whose philosophies differed from mine as long as the issue at hand promoted the welfare of the people, and I would continue to await those better angels, and to remain confident in ultimate justice.”
The Drudge report is giddy about the suicidal circular firing squad forming to destroy Biden. Who will be next? Our own favorite daughter, Elizabeth Warren?
