LETTER: Extreme Histrionics

Extreme histrionics

I am a Warren supporter but like Biden and was stunned by the extreme histrionics of several of the Democratic candidates in reaction to his remarks on compromising with racists to pass Civil Rights as well as other legislation. Politics is the art of compromise. There’s a difference between being an activist and taking a hard-line and a politician trying to move forward a legislative agenda. If Biden, Ted Kennedy, and others had behaved as they demand, Civil Rights, Violence Against Women, LGBTQ, healthcare and a hundred other agendas would never have seen the light of day. Then where would they be? Not running for president, I can assure you. Whatever “rights” we enjoy, we stand on the shoulders of others.
