• • The art of compromise
Joseph Sabino Mistick, Tribune-Review (Pittsburgh) Paul Ryan | “I can accept anything, except what seems to be the easiest for most people: the half-way, the almost, the just-about, the in-between,” says Ayn Rand, who can count among her acolytes Republican Paul Ryan. Still, even Ryan came around and voted for the compromise legislation. Rand’s philosophy is OK if you are a writer or pundit with no need to actually produce results. But try running a government with that approach, and you will surely fail.
