I generally visit the Wellstone grave at Lakewood every year on October 25th. This year, I was unable to get there until today. As I neared the stone and saw what was there, I wept. Tears of hope, tears of joy and tears of remembering. I am so grateful for our victory of President elect Barack Obama. I know all of the work Wellstone Action has done in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and various other parts of the country over the last 4 years helped make a difference. There were many graduates of camp Wellstone who were either running for office or helping run the very well managed Obama campaign. The legacy lives on.
