A Special Race

I've said to friends for months that an Obama-McCain race would be the most edifying one the country has seen in decades. It would pit two men with stark policy differences, a matching instinct for reform (though McCain's policies don't match his instincts nearly as well as they did eight years ago), and strong integrity.

We've seen multiple examples that the race will be different, including the series of Lincoln-Douglas that seems to be in the works, and both candidates decrying their parties' worst crimes of mindless partisanship.

Today, we learn from The Hill of another instance where Obama yet again puts his money where his mouth is on bringing people together.
