190. Dear Chris:
Just a quick note to say a thousand "thank yous" for all of your hard work and motivation of the Democratic base. You will never know how much it meant to us to have you - a young person - out there, lifting our spirits and giving us hope. We know that once again another election was high jacked by Karl Rove and Company, and we're not gonna stand for it. If the Dems were fired up and united during the preceding four years, we are TEN TIMES more so in the aftermath of this travesty. Senators Kerry and Edwards were clearly the better candidates -- any intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate person who truly loves and cares about this country knows it. Unify? HELL NO!

Back in 2002, your mother came out and endorsed Ed Rendell for Governor. As someone who worked on the Rendell campaign in Harrisburg, I felt deeply honored and grateful to her. Thanks in part to Mrs. Heinz Kerry, The Keystone State has someone in the Governor's Mansion who will fight for Pennsylvanians every day he's in office and has the political capital to attract businesses and jobs there.

My husband and I also send our thoughts and prayers to Mrs. Edwards for a speedy and full recovery. As a fellow graduate of North Carolina State University (class of '80), Hubby was really looking forward to seeing a fellow Wolfpacker in the Vice President's Mansion!

BTW: Please say "hello" to Mike McCurry for me. My colleague Eileen Bernacki and I were his secretaries when Mike was the Spokesperson at the State Department. I hope he, his lovely wife Deborah and their three children are happy, prospering and in good health. I look forward to seeing Mike back in the next Democratic administration!

Be well, young man and don't be a stranger. I look forward to seeing you making a run for public office in the very near future -- and doing some work on YOUR campaign! :)

Sincerely yours,

Dana Carrico Wilson
Woodbridge, Virginia
