I think that Bonifaz needs to visit the Midwest. :) I'd love to hear the man speak. Also, I am personally from Northwest Indiana. And Indiana always votes republican. However, the Northwestern portion very typically votes Democrat, due to the fact that we are so close to Chicago, and receive Chicago telivision...and most my age spend more time in Chicago than they do in their own state. My point is this, my county voted republican last year, and I'm not very pleased by that. But, it was close. This county is one of the few in Indiana that somewhat teeters between parties. I guess if we start a fire of democracy in the middle west...that it will spread to the surrounding areas. Oo, sorry, just spinning off Bush's ideas regarding the middle east. But sincerely, the Midwest needs the attention and the wise words of some one such as Bonifaz. Sometimes it's hard to see the truth through the smoke screen. I feel that perhaps John would be able to restore our sight.

Add Minnesota to that list, Senator Dayton will not seek re-election and the Republikkons are dying to get 2 Mn. senotors. We already have Coleman who implyed he agrees w/ Rove's statements about liberals, I emailed and called for him to refute Rove and he refused. We need help for the '06 election. I know you all are buisy but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask.
