Seattle Times letters to the editor

Bipartisanship: It does not show weakness, it shows strength

How funny that The Seattle Times would have the nice writeup on the Opinion page about former Gov. and U.S. Sen Dan Evans [“Dan Evans and the efficacy of bipartisanship,” Opinion, Jan. 13] on the same day that there is an article about the response to Gov. Jay Inslee’s State of the State speech drawing “predictable partisan response, signaling ‘bitter battles'” ahead for the Legislature [“State at critical crossroads, Inslee tells split lawmakers,” Local News, Jan. 13].

Oh, that our elected officials (here and in D.C.) would heed Evans’ advice that is is “better to cross the aisle than to cross the people.” Gridlock won’t improve our nation. We need real leadership here, and in Washington, D.C., willing to compromise. To do so does not show weakness, it shows strength.
