No, not that kind of love fest. Get a grip.
This is my FlipVideo of last night’s fete of reps. George Miller and John Garamendi and their role in the passage of the health care reform legislation. East Bay labor, minority and Democratic party leaders hosted the event at the IBEW Local 302 Hall in Martinez.
But you can watch the speeches yourself at the link below. (Don’t mind the backsides of the people who kept standing in front of my little camera. They eventually moved.)
Toward the end of the video (about 39 minutes or so) watch closely and you will see Miller approach Martinez Rob Schroder and playfully place a stethoscope cup on the mayor’s chest. Miller told Schroder, “I’m trying to find your heartbeat! Oh, I forgot, you’re a Republican!” But Schroder is no longer a Republican, which came as news to Miller. Schroder re-registered as an independent more than a year ago.
