It's amazing to me how people have had such different reactions to the election of Barack Obama. I have a really good friend who is seriously worried about where we're headed as a country. It's just amazing to me that I can be filled with so much optimism and hope about where we're headed, and my friend can be filled with the complete opposite...is our nation that polarized? I guess the answer is yes. I was in the car today, and I flipped past Rush Limbaugh on talk radio. I decided to stop and listen to what he was saying. I was a little perplexed. He was talking about the Democratic majority in congress, and how the Republicans won't be able to stop Barack Obama. As if that should be their only goal in life. Not to worry about working together to pass legislation that will have an effect on the country, but to make sure they can stop Obama from doing what he wants to do. It just made me sad.
I wonder, can bipartisanship really work anymore?
I really want to believe that it can.
