Politics is creative in that it permits a society to express preferences with wide latitude. But it is also creative in that it sets precedent, tone and usage. What can create can also destroy.

It will also include the outright partisanship of the press, the less than satisfactory voting processes and now campaign funding reform failure. That’s what has been given to the future. And problem with the future, as the psychic Criswell once observed, is that it is the place where most of us — and our children — are going to live.
