Thank you, Tammy

Lest I gave the wrong impression in my previous post, I would like to make it clear that I believe Congresswoman Baldwin is one of the best representatives in the house. I have voted for her every time she has been on the ballot and I don't expect that to change. I don't always agree with her, but I feel that she is on the correct side of most issues. Sometimes it seems that she plays things a little too safe. Sometimes I get the feeling that she may be a little out of touch with the reality that most of us are faced with on a daily basis. Sometimes I wonder if she has gotten too involved in the game of politics. Sometimes I ask myself why she voted a certain way on a particular issue. However, more often than not, I'm proud to have her as our representative. I think she really does want to know what her constituents have to say. I think she really does listen. I fear my last post was a bit negative and, while I meant what I wrote, I have to say she is one of a small handful of politicians with intelligence, integrity and compassion. Thank you, Tammy, and thank you for listening.

Good morning Ed,
I've decided to be (very) late for work today. Your post made me realize how easy it is to slice and dice a person when she stands before you. So, one of the things I did with this extra 60 minutes was to call Tammy Baldwin's office to thank her for the event and for the great work that she is doing in our name. I also reminded her to please impeach Dick and George.

Good for you! If only more people would also do it.

I'm impressed at how involved you are at a grassroots level. You're making me feel guilty (in a good way) for not being more politically involved lately.
