Who Do You Want in Charge? I Like Ike!
Every morning, the Missouri folks meet, pick up credentials and get to hear some great speakers.
This morning was Congressman Ike Skelton. He talked about when he first ran for Congress in 1976 that some junior senator named Joe Biden came down with Tom Eagleton to campaign for him. I sometimes forget how lucky we are to have Congressman Skelton. He is one of the most trusted folks in America - right up there with Colin Powell - when it comes to our military. Service members know that he's got their back. Contractors know to leave the lobbyists and games at the door. America's citizens trust Ike to do what is right - not just what is good for the Democrats - every time he leads a committee.
As a country, we are fortunate that people like Ike are willing to go to DC and serve.
