31. I really do understand the nature of campaigning.

Blaming certainly provides psychological value and it creates targets for campaigns to rail against and for partisans to burn in effigy, etc.



It mostly doesn't actually identify or fix problems. Indeed, it making it about personalities usually diverts energy from identifying and fixing problems.

And the point in the conversation where I injected it was about the value of identifying still existing limitations and problems and getting them fixed.
