64. No, triangulation is the art of compromise.
Edited on Tue Jul-18-06 09:15 AM by NCevilDUer
You have a point, they have a point, so you find a third point (that's where triangulation comes in) between the two that both can live with. Bill was an expert at it. Hillary was on the sidelines, and never quite got the idea.

She is not triangulating. Coompromise is not in her nature. She is staking out her position; she'll have to live with the consequences -- the loss of all progressive dems.
