"So let us begin anew - remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate."

rather than resorting to hateful and divisive rhetoric?
No one is being hateful, and this is far from rhetoric. Just by you saying that you participated in 'hateful and divisive rhetoric' because no matter what the 'other side' says, it is demeaned 'hateful and divisive rhetoric'. If we don't jump into line and chant the party slogan, we are divisive and spouting rhetoric. This has become the new slogan for the dems it seems. No one called names. No one insulted. We just point out some trends and we are admonished for it. There's your rhetoric. So, why don't the dems stop the 'hateful and divisive rhetoric' and have a meaningful discussion? Oh, the only discussion is on your terms. That isn't a discussion. That is being a "yes" man. No thank you.
