With election now over it’s time to work together

The election is over. I am sure most of us, regardless of party or preference, are glad to leave behind the political ads and robo calls.

More important for our country is to leave behind the permanent campaigning and the politics of obstruction. The result of this election proves invalid the strategy of defeating the incumbent by preventing any progress for which he might be credited. I don’t know the future, but I know our next presidential election will involve neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney. Can we ask of our elected representatives that they should work together for us for the next three, dare we ask for three and a half, years? Then they can choose their nominees and make to us their cases for election.
