Personal democracy one hug at a time
The video was shown on Good Morning America. It has over 1 million viewings on You Tube, making it one of the most popular videos on the site. It's warm, it's inspiring, and it gave fruit to the idea of using such simplicity in political campaigns. I'd like to see Deval and Kerry hugging each other, and the voters of MA. Deval Patrick I can see doing this. But Kerry Healey? Not on your life! She's too mean to hug strangers.
Boston has the perfect spot for the Free Hugs campaign: Faneuil Hall. Quincy Market. Thousands of tourists flock there for the buskers, the shopping, and the food. I'm hoping to hear that someone takes up the gauntlet and offers Free Hugs in our fair city. Hopefully without the police shutting down the hugging. Stumble It! JBlog Me
