Is it really necessary to have a National Institute for Civil Discourse for the civility-impaired?

Announced just last week by the University of Arizona, the new civility institute will have as honorary chairmen former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush. Together with the institute’s director, Brint Milward, they will promote compromise among opposing political parties and views and focus on political disagreements “from the grass roots all the way to the top.”
