Dysfunctional Congress must learn compromise

Grand Old Party?

Republicans are not grand. They are old. And they are not a party.

Henry Kissinger (a secretary of state and Nobel Prize winner) cleverly observed that the true art of negotiation is that there can't be any losers. Bertrand Russell (philosopher and Nobel Prize winner) tops everyone by saying that the mark of civilization is quid pro quo.

I never thought that I would live to see the day when "compromise" would become a dirty word.
