Been watching Ann Richards videos on YouTube.

I miss our former Governor.

She was Texas.

Still think she won the election.

Check out her videos on YouTube.

1. I wish my grandkids could have known her. 3 of them are of voting age and vote straight D ticket.

My 16 year old granddaughter and my 9 year old grandson will also hear about her from me.

3. Introduce them to her YouTube videos.

She was spot on.

Texas went down hill with Bush Jr. as Governor.

6. I once had lunch with Governor Richard's and Molly Ivins...

It was at a Martin Frost sponsored CDCC fundraiser...

I think it was in Grand Prairie...some BBQ joint.

Basically I was sitting at a table with a couple of my fellow Union members and they both came over and asked us if they could take a couple of empty seats.

Next half hour was epic.

Then Texas went to hell...

7. I bbq with Ann also.

Texas went downhill after her.

Also after Bill Hobby was no longer Lt. governor.

Damn he was Lt. Governor for 18 years.

17. Oh, thank you for this.

She was so wonderful. I have this playing in the background as I read, and she's just so on point and hilarious. Love her.

9. IOW you're watching her make speeches...

I think she was great but I have a sense that folks here would find her politics inadequately progressive today

18. I don't think I could watch her now, much as I loved and admired her.

I don't need any further reminders of just how far downhill my state, country and world have sunk.
