Baldwin touts Dem successes



U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin of Madison got a standing ovation for her address to the Dem convention where she slammed Bush and touted Dem gains.

Baldwin touted the successes of the Wisconsin Democratic congressional delegation, including raising the minimum wage, keeping the prescription drug plan SeniorCare, college loan legislation, the employee free choice act and cleaning up corruption.

Baldwin also mused on how the new Democratic majority in the U.S. House is advancing her own successes in Congress.

"I've seen my legislation all of a sudden start to get passed," Baldwin said.

She also slammed the Bush administration, pointing to mismanagement and the war in Iraq. She also relayed a story she told a friend that a Dem Congress has to first "fix things" that the Republican majority and administration wrecked.
