Much has been said about Elizabeth Dole's voting record in the Senate being strongly supportive of President George Bush's misguided policies, and that is a legitimate issue by itself. But I believe her behavior as a party apparatchik and deal facilitator has had a much more profound impact on the way our country operates and the direction in which our tax dollars flow. And the more North Carolinians are exposed to the truth about her dealings, the more likely they will realize that she's a salesperson to the moneyed elite, as opposed to a public servant.

While there is an urgency to put a bailout program in place, there are several important issues that Congress should address in the context of bailout.
I will be using this blog as way to write about my daily interactions with the citizens of North Carolina. I will be taking a 100 hour, 25 county listening tour of the state. Every night I will take time on here to tell you about my day.
