"In a system of two parties, two chambers, and two elected branches, there will always be differences and debate. But even tough debates can be conducted in a civil tone, and our differences cannot be allowed to harden into anger. To confront the great issues before us, we must act in a spirit of good will and respect for one another – and I will do my part."
Amen. If I had a dime for every mean-spirited non-productive comment I hear from our conspiracy-theorizing friends, law school would have been paid for long ago. Disagreement is proper and healthy -- anger is dangerous and ultimately futile.
