Delegates Talk: Sue Bartlett and Gene Fenderson, Helena

Our own Carol Juneau did a terrific job moderating the American Indian Caucus monday. Frank LaMere, Caucus Chair, spoke eloquently to the tribal peoples -- and to the nation -- about how American Indians have earned the right to sit at a presidential political table. American Indians have served in our nation's military in larger numbers per capita than any other population group. The last night, President Jimmy Carter, that man of good works, gave one of the toughest, most pointed speeches of his career. Clearly the George Bush foreign policy and war on the poor has been anquishing for Jimmy Carter, as well as for us.
