Of course, for everyone, imho, there are more substantive reasons to support him. I believe he is the only candidate who has the experience (albeit in the volunteer, not political, arena — maybe a plus!) needed to live up to the challenges of this job. He has had to build coalitions to achieve his goals; his visionary ability is evident to all who look at his track record.
He is, I believe, the 21st Century Ted Kennedy. He has the same idealism, the same values, the same determination to benefit all members of our society. I am not for a moment suggesting that he, or anyone, could step into those enormous shoes without some trial by fire. Still, I believe Alan brings the strength of character and a fresh, young (well, okay, young to me!) face to the campaign that deserves your serious consideration.
I plan to work hard to help get him elected as our next Senator! I would welcome your company on that (very short) journey!
