Detroit News Letters

A Thursday, September 4, 2008 Detroit News article "McCain tells cheering GOP he'll change Washington" says John McCain "vowed Thursday night to vanquish the 'constant partisan rancor' that grips Washington...."

Partisan rancor, constant or not, will only be 'vanquished' when Republicans and Democrats are both equally up to their armpits in the federal trough.

As long as one party tends to reflect the ideals of the Declaration of Independence a little more than the other, believes in following the the Constitution a little more than the other, believes we should proudly take our rightful place as the greatest country in world history a little more than the other, there will be partisan rancor.
