Today is the last day I will be interviewing Jon Ralston for my noon segment. When you’re watching all the back and forth and game playing in the election process, you tend to conclude that everything—every issue—moves toward the center. Life is a series of compromises. No matter how strident any group is to force its position down the throats of others, (the TEA Party is a perfect example of the inability of the excesses to have their way) average always prevails and average usually means very little progress will be made.
If you’re thinking this economy will wake up and charge ahead unfettered by negative influences, stop kidding yourself. Average is always the answer and not a very good one at that.
