Another reason I'm proud to be a Democrat

Just this weekend, a good, dual illustration of why I'm proud to be a Democrat:

In Washington, conservatives gathered to hoot and laugh at a Democrat being the object of a homophobic slur.

While in Selma, Alabama, the leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination were competing to show who has taken the greatest stand for and has the greatest appreciation for the civil rights movement in their respective careers.

When we talk about character issues defining parties/candidates/campaigns, let it be said that the Democrats stand up for the least among us so that we are all better for it.
