    Right on, Jon Avlon.

    I was deeply disappointed by the way a lot of my fellow Dems jumped on Cory Booker after he was on Meet The Press, just because he was speaking from the heart & trying to appeal to some sense of common decency on both sides. I don't know when it got to be that "anyone who's not a Stepford surrogate for the party line is a traitor." He was right, it is nauseating.

    I watch all the network and cable news shows on a regular basis, and have been getting very dissapointed in the continued back and forth name calling and posturing of both parties. Today on Outfront at the end of the broadcast an intelligent articulate man named John Avlon made a statement that spells it out for all Americans regardless of the party/"Team" they are for. It was the most inspiring statement I have heard in the past 10 years. More of the people who are always complaining about our government should take it to heart and then maybe, just maybe we can ALL work together to fix what is wrong "For the People of the United States of America.
