What happened to working together on problems?

Another great article from Thomas Friedman. What happened to “we” and why can’t we have a reasonable, sensible dialog about the serious problems facing the country. Why do so many of us want to hear only the sound bites that that support our beliefs?

Neither left nor right…we just need to talk, listen, and yes, compromise!

The older I grow, the less sure I am that I alone know the right answers. I’ve been certain I was right too many times and then realized that things were not as I thought. We’ve got many complex problems facing this country and the world. Global warming. Health care. Terrorism. Nuclear proliferation. These can only be addressed through serious, reasonable, rational dialog. Let’s work together!
