    Here are some definitions of Compassion

    The humane quality of understanding the suffering of others and wanting to do something about it.

    Compassion is an understanding of the emotional state of another or oneself. Not to be confused with empathy, compassion is often combined with a desire to alleviate or reduce the suffering of another or to show special kindness to those who suffer.

    Deep awareness of the suffering of another, coupled with the wish to relieve it.

    I don't know what he feels, nor do I care.

    What I want is a hard headed realist who can drag Congress kicking and screaming into understanding that those 18th century economic theories they've imposed because they're too damned lazy to read ALL of Adam Smith, surely aren't working in the 21st century.

    So who are the two people who voted no but didn't post to bother?

    I love to hear the reasoning on this one.

    Adam Smith invented the Ponzi scheme.

    I voted no. You can only judge people by their actions and I don't see his compassion coming through.

    And are you one of those people on here parroting the untrue fact that he supposedly wants to be a modern day Robin Hood?
