I Have A Dream

I Have A Dream...that one day Republicans and Democrats will sit together at the State of The Union speech. Intermingle. It's always seemed so high school, so Jocks vs. Nerds, so Marcia and Jan Brady, to put a big line down the middle of the chamber and not cross it. Talk about bullying. Arms crossed, scowling and "You Lie!"ing on one side, high fiving, cheering and smiling on the other, and vice versa, depending on the year. But after the Tucson tragedy, some politicians are coming together, improving the tone, ripping the tape off the floor and saying we can be civil, come on over, do it for Gabby, be on my team. Team America. I'll save you a seat.

I hope I'm not dreaming.
