16. Very impressive post!

You have contributed exactly the type of thoughtful statement that illustrates DU at its best. I love it. Thank you so much.

I enjoy a good debate. And there are a heck of a lot of issues that good and sincere people here can and should be debating. But the tone of many of both the pro- and anti-Clinton posts suggests that serious debates may be few and far in-between this time.

Over the decades, I've always enjoyed working on presidential campaigns. Including the primaries. But I've become convinced that the congressional races are the ones (per the national level) where the grass roots makes the biggest difference. I think that if people start there, they will find far more common ground, than if they begin by focusing almost exclusively on the presidential contests.
