    A truly great man who communicated well to all.

    May we never forget a truly ...

    With the wisdom of a Franklin,
    The eloquence of Jefferson,

Senator Wellstone jumped over to where she was, cradled her head and directed someone to go dial 9-1-1. He stayed with her until help arrived. She was revived and had full conciousness.
