Thoughts from across the aisle...

“The majority of the American people prefer a story of hope. A majority of the American people prefer a country that comes together rather than being divided. The majority of the country doesn’t want to see a dog-eat-dog world where everybody is angry all the time.”

— June 2018, Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
