My granddaughter got to hear Obama speak today.

She teaches French to first year students in exchange for her Master's Degree tuition at the University of Illinois. She said so many people wanted tickets that they held a lottery and she bought a ticket and was lucky enough to win one. She said that she has always loved to listen to him speak but it is even more awesome when you are there live and people were so raptly listening that his voice was the only thing you heard.

Lordy how I miss him. I miss his smile, his sense of humor, his genuine goodness, his sense of rightness and fairness, his intelligence and most of all, viewing what he was replaced with, his sanity.

At 75, I remember a lot of presidents. I remember and respected Congress people on both sides of the aisle. There was a time when you could respect a Republican even if you disagreed with him/her. Now there are only greedy, power hungry bigots or bizarre twits like Gohmert. The few that still retain a degree of sanity are throwing in the towel. Since they are quitting anyway, they need to grow a pair and vote to save this country from the likes of Kavanaugh. What would it hurt since they are quitting anyway?
