Obama: Keep your enemies close

Tonight at George Will's home, Obama wined and dined with conservative journalists:

Obama Tuesday night trekked to the Chevy Chase, Md., home of conservative columnist George F. Will to talk politics and get to know some of his fiercest intellectual adversaries: Charles Krauthammer, William Kristol, Larry Kudlow, David Brooks, Rich Lowry, Peggy Noonan, Michael Barone, and Paul Gigot.

Remember, this is about opening dialogue, finding common ground. There is nothing wrong with talking to anyone, this is how Barack Obama won in November, he reached across the aisle. This country has been divided far too long, for the major hurdles in the country ahead of us, it is all hands on deck.

Many on the left may not like this, but Barack Obama was voted into office for CHANGE. This change starts with listening, building a bridge for everyone to cross together, and meaning it. Obama has talked about this ALL THROUGH THE CAMPAIGN.

Outrage, at this point, is not warranted. But getting solutions to help us out of the mess of George W. Bush, is necessary.
