One can only hope it rests with the good people at this rally who stood up for inclusion and respect. Liberalism needs a strong, principled opposition, and too many of today's "conservatives" just aren't offering it. I'm happy - in fact, I'm eager - to argue about any of the important issues facing America today. That's necessary. It's what moves us forward as a country. So it saddens me when the opposition is reduced to race-baiting, ignorance, and hatred. Hopefully the supporters at this rally are the future of the party and not a dying minority (though one must wonder, to some extent, why they haven't been turned off by the campaign's tactics so far).
