Endangered: The Most Basic Right of U.S. Citizenship

I still LOVE Bill Clinton!

Say what you want, President Clinton is crystal clear regarding where the political battle is in this country. It is inconceivable to me that we don't pay more attention to him. Here is one area in which those of us who tend to view voting as a quadrennial civic recreational exercise need to listen and listen well...

""There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the other Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today," Clinton said in his keynote address to a roomful of young progressives at the Campus Progress National Conference."
""This is not rocket science. They are trying to make the 2012 election look more like the 2010 election than the 2008 election.""
