Good point at the Right's Field on Chuck Hagel's fantasy "unity ticket":
I have a tremendously hard time believing that any significant group of Americans will vote for a presidential ticket because they are civil and not because of any ideological reasoning. Civility is a red-herring. A political party devoid of any political ideology is the last thing America needs when you look at the problems that will be facing this country after Bush’s term expires.There is a real problem with divisiveness in American politics, but the answer to that isn't some sort of mindless difference-splitting or knee-jerk pseudo-centrism. The divisiveness problem is a specific one - it's the result of conservative and Republican political tactics and strategies. Likewise, the various crises facing America right now are largely the product of conservative Republican government.
