It's funny, in retrospect, that Bush ran for president as a uniter.
To unite a country, you have to acknowledge and reconcile differences.
Bush doesn't work toward unity; he assumes it.
He doesn't reconcile differences; he denies them.
It's his tax cut or nothing.
It's his homeland security bill or nothing.
It's his terrorism policy or nothing.
If you're playing politics, this is smart strategy.
But if you're trying to help the country, it's foolish.
The odds are that 50 percent of the other party's ideas are right.
By ruling them out, you start your presidency 50 percent wrong.
