From Taichung to the South, I have campaigned for Ho Hsin-Chun (Taichung), Lin Tai-hua (Kaohsiung), Chuang Jui-Hsiung (Pingtung) and Su Chen-ching (Pingtung) today. I bumped into Yu Tien [former DPP legislator, prominent singer], who joked in his speech that he couldn’t sleep for 3 days because he wasn’t nominated as a legislator at large. I spoke after him and joked ‘Yu got his sleep back after he was told that Frank Hsieh wasn’t nominated either.’
Actually, despite personal setback, Yu never forgot about the bigger picture. Unlike some of those former KMT MPs who stopped attending their meeting after learning that they were not on the [KMT] list, Yu campaigned for the DPP just as hard as before. Yu’s conduct and performance should really be commended.
