The National Creed, by David Brooks

New York Times

"If George Bush and Howard Dean met each other on a political platform, they would fight and feud. If they met in a Bible study group and talked about their eternal souls, they'd probably embrace."

Oh yeah, I believe it. Then, there'd be this awkward pause; their eyes would meet - Bush looking all compassionate and conservative, Dean looking all vulnerable and unelectable. Like Carville and Matlin, they'd live happily ever as opposites. In a civil union, mind you, not a gay marriage, as Bush always makes clear to their swinger (swing-voter) friends. I wish David Brooks would tell the whole story.
