If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad; if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

Still alive but wearing thin. Very tough being on 18 hours a day. Last day of the conference today and one more presentation. Madam and I will fly home Wednesday morning. I'll have a full dining report when I get back.
