  1. I’m glad to hear he’s fired up – ready to go!

    Last week, I wrote the President a letter reminding him that if Harry Truman had not had the guts to integrate the armed forces, we might still have a segregated armed forces. If Lyndon Johnson, clearly the most classically tragic figure in American politics, had not acted aggressively by imposing strict party discipline on the Democratic party and calling in every favor he was owed – if Lyndon Johnson had done anything less than he did, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would never have passed, millions of older Americans would not have benefited from Medicare and Barack Obama would not be president today! Challenging times – or in Churchill’s words “the times that try men’s (and women’s, too) souls” must be met by courageous women and men, or there would never be any progress. I suggested to our first Black president, that his mother and his grandparents were very proud of him and that now he should fight this health care fight in memory of all the strong and determined people who went before. Although I would not presume to tell the president what to do or how to do it, I would presume that he dedicate this battle to the wonderful people who raised him: his mother and his grandparents!!!!
