I've been listening to Ron Chernow's magnificent biography of Hamilton on occasional long commutes throughout the year, and it's a wonderful antidote to current events. It reminds me that the enduring power of our approach to government didn't come easy, and that if our nation could survive the poisonous politics of the early Republic, it can survive today's version as well. That is not a reason for complacency, but a reason instead to fight harder for what we value.     source
