Compromise is a forgotten art in politics today.  But one slice of pizza is better than an empty box.

A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it.  They say, "Huh. It works. It makes sense."


Barack Obama

My own experience is use the tools that are out there. Use the

digital world. But never lose sight of the need to reach out and

talk to other people who don't share your view. Listen to them

and see if you can find a way to compromise.
