I really believe in Shahid and in the mission of the BORDC. (Note: I'm on the advisory board.) Shahid is passionate, visionary, and clear-eyed. He is so committed to preserving civil liberties and is creative about how to make that happen, but, at the same time, he is practical about what is possible at any given moment. I think the campaign to involve local jurisdictions in taking a stand for civil liberties is the best example of this: it's tractable to get local governments to take a stand, since they are more easily moved than larger branches of government, but, at the same time, there's a larger campaign at work: getting ordinary Americans involved in civic dialogue. Shahid is all about building coalitions and is great at listening to people and finding common ground. Uncompromising leaders like Shahid are an important part of our constitutional democracy.
