Well, it's over, and the fever of political life is hushed—momentarily. Kerry, can hardly unconcede even if tallies of provisional and absentee ballots later show a closer margin. So, let's put aside our disharmonies, and try to get along with a cooperative, if not actually amiable, relationship between democrats and republicans. I realize that nowadays that's a lot to ask.
There was a time in American politics, and not too long ago either, when lawmakers on both sides of the aisles in Congress found it expedient to offer a little give-and-take in order to make progress in social issues and problems of importance to all our people. Like maybe campaign reform. And, by that I don't necessarily mean term limits. That notion gives a lot of pols the vapors. But, there's bound to be a solution to our getting the finest politicians that money can buy.
