As I read the barbs tossed back and forth between the presidential candidates and their staffs, I think the greatest Christmas present they could give us all is to take a break. We don't deserve this. It is enough. I declare a week break from campaign rhetoric and attack. Enough!
Maybe we should say we will vote for the one who keeps his or her mouth shut the longest, so we can stop and think, without distraction, about who might be the best person for the office.
