Took part in a strong protest this morning here in Tampa as Bush’s motorcade passed on its way to a conference on trafficking of women, an issue which, opportunistic photo ops aside, has only become more grave since Bush cut $20 million in enforcement.  It was a good chance for a range of groups – Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, MoveOn, several union locals – to come together to bear witness to this administration’s real record of broken promises.  My estimate would be about 300 folks out against the President’s policies and about a dozen there in support, which is a proportion similar to what it’s been both of the other places (in Pennsylvania and Connecticut) I’ve seen his motorcade go by.  Was it this way under Clinton?
