An Amazing dinnerThe Carl Albert dinner has come and gone, and that hardly seems possible! It feels like we just started planning for the event yesterday...but that is what a superb staff at ODP does for us. It was a great honor to make the remarks about Speaker Albert. Some of the college democrats and even some of the "new to the process" folks never met him, so I thought it was important to remind the audience he was a very caringl person, and not an iconic photograph, who continues to have an impact on many of us today. The kind words expressed to me later by his son made my evening...I don't know how you felt that night, but the new upscale venue and the sold-out crowd sure looked like victory to me.
