A Civil Discussion

Did you see Meghan McCain on Rachel Maddow last night? It was honestly quite refreshing:

Part 1:

Part 2:

Notice that they were decidedly light on the politics, but I am really glad to hear that there are some people in the Republican party who realize the importance of moderate voices. The fact that someone in office can't have this discussion in public is exactly what keeps the GOP from moving forward with the country.

Deep down in my progressive soul, I sort of enjoy watching the Republicans crash and burn. As an American, however, I would love to see them develop into an actual opposition party that can offer real ideas and bring something to the political table. Perhaps the people that are brought into the GOP by Meghan McCain will have a part in shaping that party.
