This is an old article but I found it very interesting. There was one quote that just stood out to me. I have pasted it below.
"Both Republicans and Democrats agree that this highly partisan ethics war has already inflicted heavy damage. But in the brave new political world personified by Newt Gingrich, a world in which confrontation is an end as well as a means, the bloodletting almost certainly won't stop here."
I want to see our country heal, and to me that quote is as scary as hell.
