Jon, agreement from a Democrat has equal meaning to me. One problem these days is that some D’s and R’s think if one side believes X, the other must believe Y. I’m not in that polarized category and think it’s the key problem to solve to get the government working again. All GOPers are not racists. Years ago I wrote an op-ed that appeared in the LA Times on this topic and things have only gotten worse since then. Uh, not because of my piece — I’m not that full of myself:) And, frankly, all Trump supporters aren’t racists either, in my view. They are angry and want a change. While I’ll be voting for Hillary, it’s not because she’s the “change candidate,” it’s because she is qualified and won’t walk us into an unnecessary war and will be judicious in how she approaches her job. Trump is uniquely unqualified to be anywhere near the levers of power.
