Melting Pot Response in the Tucson Shooting

On the News Hour, from Mark Sheilds, an observation by Alan Ginsberg:

"This week, we saw a white, Catholic, Republican federal judge murdered on his way to greet a Democratic woman, member of Congress, who was his friend and was Jewish. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year-old Mexican-American college student, who saved her, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon. ...And then it was all eulogized and explained by our African-American president. ...

"[I]n a tragic event, that's a remarkable statement about the country."
