I’ll admit I’m a passionate progressive. I’ve never been ashamed to say I’m a progressive/liberal, and obviously I’ve never been shy about expressing my beliefs – or questioning the beliefs of those with whom I may not agree.
Now whether you like President-elect Obama or not – and I know there’s a fair number of my regular readers who didn’t support his candidacy – he does raise a point that the most serious problems our nation faces can’t and won’t be solved by only one party and its supporters working alone. Liberals and conservatives may not agree on many issues, and on those we do agree on, we may differ regarding the best way to address those issues, but we all need to work together if we’re going to tackle some of the most serious issues we’re facing. In that spirit, let’s all try to work together, because I know we have some common ground.
