I hope many Americans saw the “60 Minutes” interview of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Both men calmly and smugly, I think, sat there and told Steve Kroft that things have changed so much that compromise is impossible. What complete nonsense. Compromise doesn’t happen because it isn’t in the interests of Congress’ leaders. Many Americans say they want compromise, but when we validate people like this by re-electing them over and over again, our votes say just the opposite.

Whichever man we elect president, we need to send a loud and clear message to Congress that if lawmakers do not start to compromise and get things done, we will do what we should have done long ago, which is remove the leadership of both parties.
