Ozaukee County is indeed fortunate to have a very dedicated and patriotic individual, namely County Supervisor Joe Dean, who has been the driving force in establishing a chapter of the national organization, Honor Flight. Dean is President of the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight organization, formed to offer World War II veterans the opportunity to participate in a one day tour of the recently completed World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. The first flight is planned for November 19, 2008 with 113 participants already signed up.
The avid Hillary Clinton supporters are faced with a dilemma of great proportions. Just 18 months ago, their candidate was a prohibitive favorite to become the Democrat candidate for president in the 2008 presidential election. Now, Senator Clinton is an also-ran which frustrates and hurts her supporters to the core. They continue to ask how this could have happened? If the Democrat Party had the same primary rules as the Republican Party, Hillary would have stood in that Denver sports park, delivering her acceptance speech.
If that comment puzzles you, remember that Senator Clinton won the primaries in all the big states, but had to share the delegates proportionally with Senator Obama. Under Republican Party rules, she would have been awarded all the delegates from those large states and her nomination would have been a shoo-in.
