Late Nite FDL: A Civility Lecture


Joe Klein 4/28/2006:

The only way that real change — a universal health-care system (along the lines enacted by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts), a real alternative energy plan, progressivity in taxation and entitlement reform, a cooperative non-toxic foreign policy—will come is through coalitions built from the center out. And those coalitions will only flourish in a public atmosphere of civility, humanity and compromise.

Joe Klein, 4/14/2006:

In his recent account of a breakfast book party at the home of Tina Brown and Harry Evans, Eric Alterman misquoted me slightly but significantly. What I actually said was "the hate America tendency of the [Democratic Party’s] left wing" had made it harder for Democrats to challenge Republicans on foreign policy.

Thanks for the civility lesson, Joe.  Always appreciated.
