Popular Progressive: A House Divided

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

We are at a telling crossroads in our country. We are divided on
matters of race, of economics, and of peace. Today, as the US enters a
sixth year of war in Iraq, as a recession, caused in part by this war
and in part on a war between those who have and those who have not,
causes strain and anxiety, and as a stymied conversation on race
relations and classism has been pushed front and center in the heat of
a presidential nominating process, we are challenged to find common
ground. And still, I believe, the greatness of this country is that we
will find a way. Self-reflection tells me that I have not always been
the best emissary in trying to understand or communicate to those who
I disagree with and I feel lessened for it.
