A personal reflection by Hollis Wein, JAC Communications/Research Director
It was 1988. I had just arrived back home in Washington, D.C. after my first presidential campaign, the losing campaign of Michael Dukakis. My colleagues and I poured our heart and soul into that campaign. We travelled the country, slept on floors, and knocked on doors.
It was a crushing defeat, but we were energized by the opportunity to effect change, to see America up close and personal, and to play a part in our great democratic process.
