Campaign! Don't Complain

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usI just loved this slogan by the Mikvah Challenge group. The Mikva Challenge is a non-profit, non-partisan organization founded in 1997 as a tribute to former White House Counsel and U.S. Congressman Abner Mikva and his wife Zoe. They encourage the youth in Chicago to become active participants in the political process through election and issue campaigns, and basically make politics to be more fun and less tedious.

We had a good one hour informative session with the people at Mikvah Challenge yesterday, and then we visited Professor Scott Hibbard and some of his students at the Department of Political Science in DePaul University. It was a lively exchange of views and opinions and hopefully a good starting point for some future dialogue.

We will leave Chicago tomorrow afternoon. I will miss the place, we met a lot of nice people here.
