I like his message. It is what I have been noticing in our information age. (I'm taking this to "Political Debating Moms")
Obama says: "If you're only talk to people you agree with, than politics is always going to disappoint you."
"... but I think what it has to do with is this sense of ‘we have a position and we can't compromise on it.’ One of the challenges of this generation is, I think, to understand that the nature of our democracy and the nature of our politics is to marry principle to a political process that means you' don't to get 100% of what you want. You don't get it if you're in the majority you don't get it if you're in the minority, and you can be honorable in politics understanding you're not going to get 100% of what you want.
