Placeholder Image
The big takeaway from a month-long trip to 13 states during the midterm elections might sound simplistic, but it has a deeper meaning: the United States of America is an unhappy country. Unhappy because of the widening division between Republican and Democratic leaders, who often don’t seem like they can stand being in the same room. Unhappy because of people who don’t talk politics with new friends or coworkers for fear that they might be judged based on their politics -- and lose a new acquaintance.
