Each election in our country is important but some are more historic and more significant than others. We are still basking in the glow of the election of Barack Obama as POTUS but quietly, the people of Louisiana, District 2 made a significant statement in electing little-known, Vietnamese, Republican attorney Anh “Joseph” Cao their Congressman.
He will replace incumbent and beleaguered long time representative William Jefferson. For some reason Jefferson thought his constituents would vote along Party and ethnic lines and send him back to DC for another term.
Well, that didn’t happen. The people wanted CHANGE and they got it. Voters are sick and tired of politicians like Jefferson. Voters refused to overlook the indictment of Jefferson and others close to him. I pray that this is the continuation of the revolution of the American voter and notice to pols that their usual foolishness will be tolerated no more.
