Kind touts Obama, recalls floods

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind told convention-goers that Barack Obama's message of change resonates with people because Obama talks about "change we can control."

Kind discussed themes of individualism, saying that Americans could eat right and drive the speed limit easier than government could implement a health care or energy program.

He illustrated his point by discussing the selflessness of emergency officials and citizens in the wake of devastating floods in his district. He talked about the "heartbreaking" stories he has heard, but also told two stories of complete strangers helping flood victims in La Farge, Wis., yesterday.

Kind cautioned against taking John McCain for granted, arguing that Obama's message of community and change were necessary to stop four more years of the Bush Administration.

"It's a message we need to hear," Kind said.
