Great political compromises

In 1964, a civil rights bill proposed by congressional Democrats was opposed by Republican senators and led to one of the longest filibusters in Senate history.

But could it be that it is precisely because we demand this of our leaders that compromises have become so hard? In this climate, sometimes the moderates are the real heroes.
