I got a letter -- I got a note today from one of my staff -- they forwarded it to me -- from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it, so she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed. And she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt.
Obama was so touched by this "very active" campaign worker tha he couldnot even mention her name. But he sure as hell could turn her death int a self-serving anecdote for a speech.
She might have made it, too, if only she had that Nay corpse-man by her side . . .
