It is easy to pass judgment from the sidelines. At the end of the game advisaries often show respect for their opponent's efforts. Our America has many factions, like most I want my faction to win. If mine always wins then others always lose. Compromise has been part of the game since 1776 any history buff will inform you of the many compromises have made up the America we have today. As I grow closer to a fixed income, budget deficits (inflation)scares me and I have become less tolerant of congressional spending. Yet in my youth spending that improved my income or led to a more vibrant economy was cheered.
Senators Hatch and Kennedy found common ground so that niether faction lost all the time and neither won all the time. History will look fondly of them as they do of another Senator who was favored to be a President but never made the cut. Senator Clay's mark on our country is deep and he is considered a great statesman. Kennedy and Hatch fall into this catagory.
