"#!$%#@*^$% moderates!" Column in USA Today (Sept 2013) [View all]

This woman has some good thoughts on why it might be the saner course to get back toward moderation and compromise to actually move this country forward.

In my business psychology unyielding, strident insistence on extreme positions brings failure in marriage, career and business. Stubbornness about "principles" with no effort to understand and work with other views causes isolation and feuds, in every area of life.

And yet when it comes to politics, the staunch and unbending are yelling. The right sneers that fellow GOP-ers are "RINOs" (Republicans in Name Only); the left bashes "moderate Democrats" in favor of a "good, progressive, populist message," to quote Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa.
