Representative Clyburn may well book end his life with great acts for America.

As a young man fighting for full Civil Rights for all Americans. Near the end of his career launching the campaign which will beat the most Authoritarian President America has ever seen.

And the entire life in between filled with service to the people.

I saw him on TV tonight and was moved with admiration.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

When he came to Rochester to stump for Tim Walz. He saw my red hat with the Anti-Michele Bachmann button and I was the first person he shook hands with and hugged. I have photos saved on my computer.

One thing I remembered from that night, he spoke about his love of sea turtles and that his wife collected them.

and deservedly so. I have no idea what, if any, cabinet position he may want but I look forward to seeing him in the administration.

To end his career serving his district and state. Plus, he is a player in the house.
