“Yes, we’re Democrats -- but with this work we haven’t got our blue hats on.
We’ve got our red-white-and-blue hats on here, our Pledge of Allegiance hats,
our 7th Inning Stretch hats.

We just want people’s votes to be counted right, and we think that
patriotic Democrats, Republicans and Independents can agree on that Constitutional principle.”

Reverend William Moss of Columbus, Ohio
speaking at the National Press Club,
Washington DC; January 5, 2005
