Thomas Friedman has knack of capturing the essence of a situation I've had in the back of my mind for a while:
We can’t afford to keep being this stupid! We have got to get our groove back. We need a president who will unite us around a common purpose, not a common enemy. Al Qaeda is about 9/11. We are about 9/12, we are about the Fourth of July — which is why I hope that anyone who runs on the 9/11 platform gets trounced.
I couldn't agree more. Let's just hope that we can all think about 9/12 over the next year as the political rhetoric heats up.
