  1. I don't know how this attitude will work out, but it is so refreshing to see. Once upon a time, opponents were able to debate the 'what I'm going to do,' not the "remember what you did," especially when the 'what' is decades old.
    Huuu-Raaaah! Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. I'll pray your attitude is contagious.

  2. Paul Levin says:

    Well, this is a refreshing approach. I'm a Democrat and live in Ohio but it's nice to see someone suggesting that the politics of personality be replaced with the politics of ideas. I don't know if I'd vote for the Rabbi were I a New Jerseyite, but he just might persuade some that there is a better way to run a campaign. I was going to say that his approach is more in keeping with Jewish values but, unfortunately, there are too many of my co-religionists, including, apparently, Congressman Rothman, who have chosen the wrong way to campaign. I hope Rabbi Boteach will be a model for others to follow.

    What a nice idea. Unique!

    Can you imagine Canadian Prime Minister Harper,our best PM ever having Thomas MULCAIR, NDP leader for dinner.
    There is no love in Canada either but this would change history forever.
