I miss Paul Wellstone

With the discussions we've been having with Reckless Endangerment and the OWS movement I can't help but wonder what the late Paul Wellstone, former senator from MN, would say if he were here to witness today's America. Strangely enough, while surfing the web in a state of nostalgia, I came across a clip of him speaking on the  Senate Floor in which he eerily predicts many of the economic risks and dangers that would come to pass just a decade or so later.

If more members of congress recognized his creed that "politics is not about big money or power games; it's about the improvement of people's lives" perhaps we'd be in a different place right now.
