How refreshing to have 2 opposing candidates with disparate backgrounds and levels of experience treat each other with respect and deference.

It's more than polish, its professionalism that sets the standard for the rest of us, and how we should treat each other when dealing with public policy issues.

The negativity and name calling that this last election cycle generated was appalling and useless. If we can't treat each other as adults, how do we expect the next generation to be any more respectful?
