The Happy Warrior

Otherwise known as Minnesota's most influential politician, Hubert H Humphrey, Jr.

I attended a dedication ceremony on the state capitol grounds in St. Paul this afternoon where a long list of dignitaries (Democrat AND Republican) addressed a large crowd for the unveiling of a bronze memorial to our "Happy Warrior". There was no one who fought as tirelessly as Humphrey for civil rights and voting rights.

Among the dignitaries were Vice President Walter Mondale, Governors Mark Dayton and Arne Carlson, Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, Humphrey's son Skip and the Big Dog himself, President Bill Clinton.

Thanks for posting that. HHH was a good man & a politician I wish we had more of today - not necessarily for his stand on liberal positions one whose strong character & willingness to work with others for the common good that is so sadly lacking today.

Including voting rights for the dead, as I recall.

Do you speak to the dead often?
