Quote of The Week
When he meets a Democrat, Mehlman says, he tries to find out what they have in
common and see if they can work together. "Politics ought to be about addition,
not division," he says. A Republican official said Mehlman follows the Coke
approach and Dean doesn't: "Coca Cola doesn't attract people by saying Pepsi
drinkers are intolerant and have never worked a day in their lives." In short,
Dean is abrasive. Mehlman isn't.
