Buckley, Moynihan, and Company

The late and missed Tim Russert talking about the caliber of political discourse in a speech at Notre Dame.

What a nice recollection. Thanks for posting.

You're welcome. We need more Buckleys, Moynihans, Goldwaters, and Humphreys in politics.

I agree completely. I served on a local council for several years. It was rarely partisan. But even when it was, following the meetings we would all adjourn to the local watering hole to have a couple drinks and enjoy conversation. It made the experience enjoyable and took the sting out of disagreements.
