A conservative offers a truce, ground rules for serious discussion. Problem? Aside from the hard left, the fringe, most of what he requests of his interlocuters has already been conceded. Not so sure the converse applies, but at the very least he's willing to talk.
Still, it's a really good move towards something resembling a middle ground, and I'll have more thoughts about it later. It's nice to discover that there might be someone out there I can talk to.
