    Issues like the economy, health care, the war in Iraq and international relations have the potential to unify us. They diverge from the war of individualism.

    They transcend individual differences and encourage common ground.

    I think the first order of business is to not call people that disagree with the president's policies traitors.

    Oops, I forgot Bush wasn't in office.

    too funny......i don't see those three issues unifying the american public.....but then you only need 51% of the voting public to unify.....most of the american populatin doesn't vote and just goes along with the winner....

    Ravioli--

    There will always be die hard haters that want to keep the game going. President Obama isn't going to give them the time of day, and I don't think we should either.

    The discussion was fascinating. One of the guests on the show was a man who is a strong Catholic researcher against abortion. After numerous conversations with Obama, he ended up voting for him. He completely gets what Obama is about.

    Actually, if you examine why Obama won the election it does NOT have to do with 'wedge politics'.

    Do you think his philosophy is "We see a world as it is and wish to change it into what it should be"?
