Niagara Gazette — Get this — it didn’t take a Voter Rights Act to get him to change his mind and to ride the Obama buggy to victory. What it took in Atlanta is what it takes in every democracy everywhere; and that is the voices of the people telling their elected officials that either they represent their constituents’ wishes, or they find employment elsewhere.
Lewis got the message, supported Obama and he kept his job. But like Lewis, so many of us rue the woeful message that we have won a bitter-sweet victory and have moved a little further up MLK’s mountaintop of equality as a result of what just happened. Maybe it will echo in the Fourth District and throughout America.
