    This girl (McCain) supposedly has an Ivy League education, but she is a complete idiot with no credentials. Consensus building is good, but no one right or left is listening to her.

    I actually think Meghan sums up how I am feeling. You can understand and disagree with another person’s position without demonizing the person.

    “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

    Sitting together in Congress, while largely symbolic, it’s what happens afterwords that matters. If this bipartisanship fizzles afterwords then it really doesn’t matter. It will take more of a culture shift where people crave and put pressure on their congress members to continue being bipartisan.

    Its a long shot but I have hope.

    People often complain when celebrities are given the spotlight to voice their views on political matters. Meghan McCain’s opinions have no more validity than…..Justin Bieber’s…. as far as I can tell.

    You didn’t watch the segment carefully. Rachel mentioned that she met her wife Susan at a gun event.

    Rachel’s really spectacular in reaching out to the other side to discuss things in a reasonable and intelligent manner. She certainly doesn’t agree with Meghan McCain on any number of issues but she welcoems the fact that they can converse rationally.

    I don’t understand why Meghan McCain gets such a bad rap from people on here. While I wouldn’t say that I agree with her on many issues, I think she does a great job of being civil and open to what people with different ideologies have to say. If more Republicans (and Democrats for that matter) were like her, we might actually be able to move forward in this country rather than ending in political stalemates.
