An interesting insight from CNN contributor Bob Greene:
"Here in the U.S., for all the heat of this year’s campaign, you can walk the streets and see, on the same block, signs for the Republican ticket, signs for the Democratic ticket, displayed proudly on the front lawns. . .and the neighbors are still neighbors, the people pulling into the driveways still wave hello to each other at the end of a workday, the competing political passions and disagreements are not only welcomed, but cherished."

This blog post made me feel all warm and fuzzy and uncharacteristically non-partisan.
