Yes, the ability to have a political debate in this country without rancor and hatred entering the equation is pretty much gone. Compromise is pretty much gone from the system. It is what made this country great. Regan and O'Niel couldn't have been farther apart philisophically, but could put that aside for the good of the country. We seem to have lost that. It is now a giant game of gotcha. I never liked him, but I would kill to have BILL Clinton over Obama because Clinton knew how to compromise. We can debate where this all went wrong, I woould say it started with Obama, Reid and Pelosi. You would probably disagree. One thing is certain, if it continues we are f'd as a country.
