[Ed. – Another Democrat putting country above petty politics.]
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has a proposition for you: Vote Democratic this November or risk seeing our overheated political rhetoric go to the next level.
The California congresswoman made her pitch this week during an interview with CBS’ Stephen Colbert, who pointed to recent discussions about “lowering the temperature of political discourse.” He asked whether she had seen “evidence of that.”
“Well, I think when we win, you will see evidence of that,” Pelosi responded. “Because when we do win, we will have, as we open the new Congress, we will honor the vows of our founders, E pluribus unum, from many one. It’s OK to disagree in the marketplace of ideas, that’s exciting, but it is also important to find solutions that unify and not divide.”
In other words, let Democrats win and nobody gets hurt.
The House minority leader added, “We own the ground. We’re not yielding one grain of sand. Democrats will carry the House … It’s going to be a great night for America.”
