I'm not posting this to accomplish some sort of cheap shot against Dana Garrett, who's a social democrat and favors universal health care via single-payer and other publicly funded solutions with which I vehemently disagree.
I'm posting it because it raises the point that we often forget in America: that we are a complex people, with beliefs that do not rigidly hew any particular ideological line in the face of things like, say, clear conflict of interest or casual abridging of the due process of law.
Unfortunately, we spend far too much time in name-calling and sound-bites to remember that the commonalities that unite us are more significant than the political opinions that divide us.
