There are substantial differences between the right and the left. But when ideological disagreements become bitter partisanship, when the goal of a party or caucus is to beat the other party, then neither party is serving America. The differences need to be discussed. But America needs compromise. As Governor Daniels said, ''Should the best way be blocked ... then someone will need to find the second best way. Or the third, because the nation's survival requires it. Purity in martyrdom is for suicide bombers.'' Well said, Governor. It's time for our leaders to stop serving their party, and begin serving the entire country.
