The chairs of the Veterans Caucus and Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party today praised the Obama Administration’s announcement that the U.S. would end combat operations in the war in Afghanistan in 2013.
Diana Peterson-More: I thank President Obama enormously for having persevered against much rancor and dis-information to pass health reform. My family, along with all American families, will benefit a great deal.
Treva Brandon Scharf: I use these parks and trails for exercise, for social time with friends, for activities with out-of-towners, for romantic outings, and for the spiritual benefits I get from communing with nature.
Ed Rampell: Some may find Wasserman to be an alarmist, while others might regard him as a prophet. In any case, he is also a jokester and on the, uh, lighter side this ’60s “leftover” advocated “legalization of hemp and marijuana.”
