Yes, forty or fifty Democrats did not show up for the speech. And ten or twenty of my distant relatives and college buddies did not show up for my wedding many years ago.

But the relatives who were related to me before the wedding still hold me dear. And my college buddies and I still would give the shirts off our backs to help each other.
