Artur Davis, Democrat of Alabama, 2008:
In a cavernous auditorium in Birmingham, this past January, I heard Barack Obama tell my state that our generation can find its way again. I heard him tell my state on a Sunday afternoon that, if you really want to see a politics of faith and morality, you’ll find it in the politics with an abiding conviction for the fate of the least of these and the lost among us.
Artur Davis, Republican of Alabama, 2012:
Some of you may know, the last time I spoke at a convention, it turned out I was in the wrong place. May it be said of this time in our history: 2008 to 2011: lesson learned. 2012: mistake corrected.
Martin Luther King, Christian, 2012:
Letter from Very High Above that Birmingham Jail
I look down upon my brothers and sisters joining hands and am so very pleased. But I have to tell you, that other stuff was never in any platform I ever stood on. I did not preach, I did not march, I did not plead, I did not sacrifice and I did not die for these other things. Correct your mistakes, brothers and sisters.
