I’d like to take a moment – and a post – to offer my condolences to Sen. Barack Obama and his family. Sen. Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham who the Senator called “Toot” died Sunday, November 2nd, 2008.
Here are more details.
I’m happy that Sen. Obama put family ahead of ambition and returned to Hawaii to see her last month. He did not manage to make it time to see his mother before she died and to have that happen again would be more than I would wish on any but a very few.
My condolences and my prayers, Senator.
