Remembering Sen. Wellstone

We’ve seen some coverage commemorating former Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone, who died eight years ago this week in a tragic plane crash. This is a good, if incomplete, look at some inspiring public addresses. Wellstone always reminds us, in one way or another, to keep our eye on the prize: ““Politics isn’t about big money or power games; it’s about the improvement of people’s lives.”
