    just heard interesting talk on public radio with some guy whose name i tuned in too late to hear. he was saying that baby boomer politicians have Manichean beliefs, therefore cannot compromise, because to compromise is to betray their values.

    Too bad the ability to compromise is not one of their values. Representative democracy does not work without compromise. No form of government works without compromise. Too bad those who oppose compromise don’t know the meaning of the word: “to promise together.”
