As we are driving around, we see all the political signs that have sprung up like mushrooms. It has made me compare political races to divorce and mediation. Unfortunately, negative campaigned reminds me of adversary divorce. All too often adversary divorces are based on attempts to destroy each party. This has a deleterious effect on any children. Like in political campaigns people say they don’t like it but it seems to work. Mediation is based on trying to find positive common ground. I don’t think I have seen many political campaigns when that happens. It use to happen more often after an election when people were trying to govern. Speaking of signs, I hope candidates will take their signs down as soon as possible after the election!
