Oops. Lee Hamilton was/is a Democrat

The author of the letter entitled "Be fair when citing party affiliations" (Feb. 1) complained that the Daily Herald cites party affiliations when mentioning Republicans who have done something wrong, but not when they have done something right. Further, he claims the opposite is the case for Democrats.


As an example, he mentions Mr. Lee Hamilton who provides guest columns for the Daily Herald, and he suggests that the newspaper should cite Hamilton's Republican Party affiliation.

Of course, the reason such an affiliation could not be mentioned is that the highly respected former congressman Lee Hamilton was, and is, a Democrat.
