I thought Bill Clinton’s remarks hit the bullseye. John Lewis wasn’t a plaster saint, he was a human being who worked hard to live up to his own beliefs:
Former Pres. Bill Clinton on John Lewis: “He was after all a human being.— ABC News (@ABC) July 30, 2020
A man like all other humans, born with strengths that he made the most of when many don’t.
Born with weaknesses that he worked hard to beat down when many can’t.” https://t.co/u1nsPN51AP pic.twitter.com/M1Z3inXrw7

“He’s gone up yonder and left us with marching orders. I suggest—since he’s close enough to God to keep his eye on the sparrow and us—we salute, suit up and march on.” https://t.co/sVteeuYRLu pic.twitter.com/Ahe3SJWWGx
John Lewis left us some final marching orders. Let’s carry them with us into November and beyond.https://t.co/lfYwpIdZEM— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 30, 2020

This is what an Adult Man looks like…You don’t have to love someone to show respect. Agree to disagree. This is the « American » thing to do. Thank you President Bush. #georgeWbush https://t.co/A2YtsMJnNM— Nadine or Nay (@BKFoodie97) July 30, 2020
President Obama was outright political, something we haven’t seen before. Good!
