"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Wu speaks

Is this – an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC – enough? Would additional such interviews be? Does it answer enough of the questions?

Representative David Wu says that he’s receiving both medication and other treatment, and “I emphatically can do that job. I am doing that job.”

“I’ve gotten myself in a good place,” he said.

He seemed to deal well enough with some of the issues that have cropped up in the Oregonian and elsewhere – such as, following resignation of his campaign treasurer, his plan to serve in that role. (He says it’ll be only temporary and brief.) But not all have been resolved.

You get the sense that his political future may be resolved though, one way or another, in the next week or two.
