The fact the the two parties reconcile their differences and unite to work toward the common good (less gridlock) will benefit the U.S. economy and consequently the stock market as well as world peace.
Here is one such first step:
McCain and Obama will never be comrades in arms. They have too much history, too much mutual ill will and too many philosophical differences for that. In the two years since McCain went down to defeat against Obama, the tension between the them has been evident in almost every public setting in which they’ve appeared.
But in praising the president’s speech at Wednesday’s memorial service in Tucson, McCain has reached out to Obama with an open hand. Not since his gracious concession speech on the night of the election has McCain spoken so generously of his rival. Obama should not let the opportunity pass to reach out to McCain in return.
McCain said much more than that the president gave, as he put it, “a terrific speech” on Wednesday. He offered a character reference for a politician whom many conservatives in McCain’s party see as un-American. “I disagree with many of the president’s policies,” he wrote, “but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country’s cause. I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals.”
I believe taht the recent tragedy in Arizona has something to do with this positive change of potitical culture. Like the French always said:
A quelque chose malheur est bon. Translated in English “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
