"Free at last, Free at last, Thank God Almighty, Free at last."
"...This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
We have a mandate from all of those who supported us and who we care about to continue standing up for progressive causes, and we have values -- because that's the way we were raised -- not to relent until we eventually win. ...
This is surely the letter I least want to write. I am devastated that we will not see John Kerry and John Edwards in the White House. But, my friends, we've learned some important things here. We made a difference! We delivered Wisconsin for John Kerry!....

Perhaps this image owes more to Hollywood than to real life but it illustrates the critical moment that we're at in the current campaign. ....
I would like to keep it very simple. This is it. We are in the last eight days to fulfill our dreams, yours and mine.
As many of you know, from DuPage County, I along with Bob Wagner, Nancy Young, Bryan Thompson and Krystle Newquist have been with this campaign from the very beginning. Checkout the picture above from the initial days of campaign. ....
