A house divided cannot stand.

Title from Lincoln.

We saw two conventions (with one more night to go). One seemed to be divisive. One seemed to be inclusive.

One seemed to honor and respectfully disagree with the other side. One seemed to slam and be unduly negative.

One had people of every color and race. The other had more cowboy hats than minorities.
One had statespeople. The other had campaigners.

I feel as if this country will be more divided than ever tomorrow morning. I did not feel this way last week. I saw the same thing 8 years ago with a charming, affable guy from Texas who had very bad ideas.

"USA! USA!"? "Drill baby, drill"? Really? The fighting goes on. No one wins.
