extending an olive branch
i have already said enough this week- so i am going to keep it short. we have an opportunity now with the democrat victory this midterm election. the past 12 years under neo con rule have been contentious, divisive and destructive. it is important to remember that not every republican is one of these divisive people, and indeed helped the democrats achieve victory throughout the entire country. without these folks, we would not be in this position today where we control the congress of america. we are not yet the united states of america- but we can be. we can reach out across the aisle and extend the olive branch. we can help the moderates retake control and maintain it- because we have to. we have political capital right now. let's not follow bush's lead and squander it. let's make peace with the moderate republicans and rebuild our country. let's not be too arrogant to say thank you.
