‘This is not an election anymore, it’s an intervention.’

‘We don’t care whether you’re white or black or brown or purple – you are welcome in the Democratic Party. We don’t care what religion you are or how big your bank account is – you are welcome in the Democratic Party. We don’t care whether you walked in here or rolled in here, whether you’re first generation American or a Mayflower descendant – you are welcome in the Democratic Party. And we don’t care what gender you are or what gender you like to hold hands with. So long as you like to hold hands, you are welcome in the Democratic Party.’
– Joe Andrew*
* DNC Chair, 1999-2000, paraphrased from his stump speech. It was inspired by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was born into privilege, but who – humbled by polio – came to see that everyone needs a helping hand from time to time, and that we are all in this together.

Quote of the Day
To the BELOVED REPUBLIC under whose equal laws I am made the peer of any man, although denied political equality by my native land, I dedicate this book with an intensity of gratitude and admiration which the native-born citizen can neither feel nor understand.~Dedication to Andrew Carnegie's Triumphant Democracy (Scribner's, 1886)
