Spotlight: Patrick Murphy

While I mentioned two of the candidates I most strongly supported in this election, Jim Webb and Jon Tester, I should also give congratulations to the third, "the Paul Hackett of Pennsylvania," Patrick Murphy, who gives my parents the first decent Congressman from that area in decades. It'll be great to see somebody my age in the Capitol, speaking on the House floor, providing his expertise in military matters by becoming one of the only members to serve in Iraq.

A big round of applause for Murphy.
