Mayors for Obama
I found this video interesting for several reasons. Of course one of them is because of the introduction by the great Mayor of Minneapolis - RT Rybak, who had the wisdom to be one of the first elected officials in the country to endorse our President.
Secondly, it has been our Mayors all over the country (but especially in our big urban areas) who have felt the direct heat of our economic problems. These are the men and women on the front line of hearing from citizens about the impact of job losses (both public and private) in their communities. So I appreciated hearing from them about what the Obama administration has meant in their communities.
And finally, how can you help but notice what our "farm team" looks like? The diversity of the Democratic Party on the front lines speaks very well to the future of our party - and our country.
