For a political party that historically has prided itself being the “Party of the Big Tent,” it escapes me why Democratic Party leaders would turn away anyone like George Boll who wants to join us.

I wrote a letter last February advising George P. Bush that if he were real smart he would run as a Democrat.

Barring candidates who have voted in past Republican primaries from now entering the Democratic primary is reminiscent of George Wallace standing at the schoolhouse door and barring children because they were black.

As a lifelong Democrat hoping to elect Wendy Davis Governor, I say, like unto what the Macedonian said to the apostle Paul: “Come over into the Democratic Party and help us.”
