Whatever kind of country
and world people decide they want, the next question is, How
can they get it? Probably by gaining a new understanding of politics.
Politics is democracy's way of handling public business. There
is no other. We won't get the kind of country in the kind of
world we want unless people take part in the public's business.
Unless they embrace politics and people in politics.
Yes. Why not? Theirs is, in essence, an honorable calling. When
we treat it accordingly, we will deserve politicians who honor
their having been called, There is public business to be done.
We need to help the men and women who have chosen to undertake
it. And from time to time they need our help.
