76. I don't need a lecture from you about politics.
I have been active in politics all my life. You are way too cynical. Both sides can and have worked together for the common good of the country. Or at least that's the way it used to be in days of Tip O'Neil when he would have a friendly drink with Gerald Ford while discussing a legislative agenda for the House. That type of bipartisan spirit is what Obama is trying to revive.
