Studs recently passed away at the tender age of 96. Here is a transcript of a phone conversation he had shortly before his death about a possible Obama presidency. Given that Obama looks like he will be elected our new president in about 36 hours, its good to remind ourselves that him becoming president is not the prize, its the first step. We have to make sure that Obama stays true to the principles that got him elected, and that he makes good on his promises for working people in this country.
RIP Louis “Studs” Terkel
