Fantastic letter, thanks for posting it, I will send it to all I can. I just wished I could be " still hopeful".

Russ Beaton said: " Even to an independent centrist and especially to an ardent supporter, your call for compromise and “working together” sounded like complete capitulation."

--"Working together" sounds to me like Obama's platform during the campaign...both sides working together to find solutions and an end to partisan bickering, an end to Washington politics as usual.Isn't that the soaring rhetoric Beaton found so captivating? Isn't that how our system is supposed to work? What's wrong with working together? It would seem it is the writer's view that it is either his way or the highway, that the solutions conform to his ideology or they are no good at all. He is a whining brat in my opinion.
