Only Human

Nice to see the Democratic candidate isn't the only one with stories that tug the ol' heart strings:

A nurse entered and seemed surprised to find anyone there, and it wasn't long before I found out why: Almost no one visits anymore. In his time, which was not very long ago, Mo Udall was one of the most-sought-after men in the Democratic Party. Yet as he dies in a veterans hospital a few miles from the Capitol, he is visited regularly only by a single old political friend, John McCain. "He's not going to wake up this time," McCain said.

Oh, and for the record, I've never once claimed McCain was a messiah. That's what your side does with your candidate. The sad thing is it's the one thing your side has never once denied.

If there were any doubt about my vote going to McCain, that sealed the deal!

Udall played 1 year with the Denver Nuggests then attended law school. He later served 14 terms as a Congressman from Arizona. He died in 1998 from complication of Parkinson's Disease.
