Here's what PCCC members around the country felt 10 years ago when Wellstone passed:

“I was completely overwhelmed by grief.” – Michael Donnelly, Minnesota

“I cried. I'm 76 and in the struggle a long time. He was a beacon for us.” – Ann Dellert, Florida

“Devastated. Even though I live in California, I always felt that he represented me. It was so encouraging that someone with strong principles could win elections and maintain his values.” – Lorraine Priceman, California

“Shocked. Devastated. Angry.” – Liesl Rohland, Minnesota

“I felt like I had lost a best friend or close relative. I would meet him occasionally on the plane between Minneapolis and DC -- he always remembered me and what I did for a living (and I was not even a person who could vote for him).” – Rosalie Schnick, Wisconsin

“I felt devastated. My first political contribution ever was to Paul Wellstone.” – Anita Jackson, California

“I'm a former Wellstone staffer. His death was devastating, and still is. I'll never get over it.” – Roger Wolfson, California

“Like so many others, I could hardly believe it. Losing him was such a great loss to the Democratic Party in Minnesota and the U. S.” – J. K. Fort-Strietzel, Minnesota

“I could not believe it, it made be sick, I called everyone I knew. I said a prayer for his family.” – Nancy Wilson, Minnesota

5. The man stood up to War Inc.

"Who is that little chickenshit?" -- President George Herbert Walker Bush, upon first meeting the then-new Senator Wellstone.
