Quotation

You know, the founders made it that way on purpose. They made it messy... so that no one law, no one government, no one man, could decide the fate of everything and everyone. In very simple terms, we got a heck of a lot of different people with a heck of a lot of different agendas. But I also believe that people, most people, are basically, at their core, good people. ... No matter what we think about someone... we never truly know what it's like to walk in their shoes. But we have to try. You know, whether it's a colleague, a family member, or a particular opponent... well, especially our opponents. Because where their needs align with our needs... is where things get done. Now, that's America. Just a bunch of different states. States of land, states of mind, states of people. And it's up to us, all of us, to keep all those different states... united.
