Ned in Danbury
Over at at Hat City Blog, CTBlogger has a great write-up of Ned's appearance at Danbury High School yesterday:
The man who's looking to give Joe Lieberman his pink slip answered a series interesting questions from the packed audience ranging from the Iraq War, immigration, and the situation in Darfur, to the No Child Left Behind Law, urban violence and rising college tuition costs.
I have to say, the students asked better question than most other people did on the various Lamont events I've attended. It's promising to see students taking an interest into issues that will have an impact on their lives.
More at the Danbury News-Times:
When asked after the discussion why he would take time out of a hectic campaign to meet with students, few old enough to vote, Lamont looked surprised and answered promptly.
"I think we're short-changing kids," he said. "I want to make sure there are opportunities for them. It's not just politics. I want these kids to know they can go out and do things and make a difference."
