Paging John Lewis
I was thinking about the Obama stimulus plan and which projects were going to get included. Wouldn't it be great if Atlanta had a congressman with gobs of seniority, who was well respected, had a leadership position as senior chief deputy whip, and had announced his support for Barack Obama at a key moment during the presidential campaign? The kind of guy who had two challengers recently who criticized that he didn't pay enough attention to local issues and his district? That kind of Congressman would be in a great position to bring home the bacon. You know, if we had that kind of a Congressman.
