State of the Union Wisdom

My favorite passage….

“Finally, none of these reforms can happen unless we also lower the temperature in this town. We need to end the notion that the two parties must be locked in a perpetual campaign of mutual destruction; that politics is about clinging to rigid ideologies instead of building consensus around common sense ideas.”

– President Barack Obama, 2012 State of the Union Address
