Blast from the Past, Obama-style
I just came across this 2005 post from Barack Obama warning against the enforcement of an orthodox party line and why we shouldn't vilify allies who hold different positions from us on a few issues. Specifically, it's about how even though he voted against John Roberts' confirmation, he was dismayed at the tone some leftists had taken against Democrats who did vote for Roberts. It's a great little opinion piece that eloquently differentiates his brand of constructive dialogue from the take-no-prisoners partisanship a lot of political arguments fall into these days.
Man, I hope this guy becomes President.
