Do you think Sen. Trent Lott’s decision to step down was the right thing to do?
Asked at Hy-Vee, 4000 W. Sixth St. on December 22, 2002
“Yes, I do. I think he has not performed very well lately.”
“Yes, I think he did the right thing because nobody can get past what he said.”
“I think he was totally misunderstood because he was talking about the time the old senator was running for the White House. From what I read in the newspapers I saw nothing that would be offensive to anybody. But I think he has been there long enough. It won’t hurt his paycheck any.”
“Absolutely. He let the cat out of the bag that he still favors segregation and that’s absurd today.”
