Can we have debate without venom, the way you argue with a close friend--pushing hard & calling b.s. when you see it, and even if there are fireworks, there is still respect and friendship. What if we had more Crossfire-type shows with regulars from left and right? Jon Stewart was wrong about Crossfire "ruining the country." Crossfire's end meant more choir-preaching: Rush on his show, Maddow on hers, Beck here, Olbermann there. No one makes arguments to convince people who don't already agree with them. On either side. Please, no "We can't talk b/c the other side sucks" answers.
