" Ed's care and defense of the working class meant a great deal to me. I have been a Democrat for many years, but have often felt unsupported by the corporate wing of the Party. I also appreciated Ed's knowledge and understanding of the rural communities of our country. How healthy it is for us all to walk in each other's shoes and release our pre-conceived notions.
Ed's love for his family, his deep respect for Wendy, his wife and his pride in his children, were clear. This is an admirable trait in a man, and desperately needed in men who possess a public voice.
Ed's death at a relatively early age is a shock to me and a real loss to Americans who care about democracy.
I extend my sincere condolences to you all. May his family feel supported by the many of who admired and valued Ed for his big heart, his integrity, and his love of country."
"ED SCHULTZ, In my humble opinion,n was not only one of the finest broadcasting personalities on the scene today, but also one of the most humain.
I was very upset for a long, long,long time when he left MSNBC. I felt very strongly, that a man like him needed to be out there for ALL OF US, AND HE CERTAINLY WAS. ED WAS A MESSENGER FROM GOD HIMSELF, AND THAT'S THE WAY I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM. FROM OUR FAMILY TO HIS FAMILY, OUR CONDOLENCES.
