Letter: My regrets


I regret that there is no middle ground upon which to meet anymore.

I regret that the campaign for the next election starts an hour after the newly elected president is sworn in, and lasts a long, long four years until the next president is inaugurated and then starts all over again.

But most of all, I regret that the next time I listen to a campaign speech, I’ll have hope. The speechwriters know what the American people want to hear, and they deliver. I will begin to believe and then ... I’ll regret it all over again.
