The missing voice

There are plenty of memorials for Paul Wellstone in today’s papers and in the blogosphere. I did one back in 2004 and I feel the same today. I just can’t let the anniversary of Wellstone’s untimely passing go by without commenting. People who met Paul Wellstone liked him, even when they didn’t agree with him. More than anything, we all missed his voice during the build up to the war in Iraq. In 2002, Wellstone was saying what we all know now back when it was political suicide. And he was on his way to winning re-election anyway. Just imagine what he could have done in office during these last few dark years. It’s up to us to try and overcome his loss with our own action and integrity.
