Watching TV and listening to post-election coverage I hear "boos" for Democrats who did win at Republican election night events coast to coast. Meanwhile the Democratic event I was at and others I saw on TV had polite applause for the announcement of Republican victors in offices.
Of course we cheered Harry Reid when he came to the stage to serve another six year representing Nevada in the Senate, entering a difficult time for Democrats, but far from the most difficult of his career in public service.
How can you work with the other party to govern if you "boo"the president or your opposing party? And you would think the party of "business" would have better decorum and respect than has been shown.
