NED LAMONT’S SUPPORTERS ARE NOT DISAPPOINTED:
“I think in any type of significant social movement . . . there are a series of triggering steps, like Rosa Parks sitting on the bus. There had already been a number of sit-ins that happened,” Swan said. “I think when people reflect on the war in Iraq and mistakes that have been made and how we dealt with them, this campaign and particularly the primary will be a very significant moment. Ned having the courage to step up and run – it’s not something that happens regularly in U.S. politics.”
It was a “moral victory,” no doubt about it.
