A Nice Political Moment

This video of Speaker Boehner and Vice President Biden is, as a friend of mine pointed out, kind of charming –two old-fashioned politicians caught on an open microphone unaware, talking about golf and enjoying each other’s company prior to the president’s speech to a joint session of Congress. They showed good humor and what seems to be real affection for one another.

It made me like both Messrs. Boehner and Biden more. And it’s a small but good reminder that incivility and animosity hasn’t infected every Democratic-Republican relationship in Washington.
