Hard to say. I watched the nation split and grow apart under Bush, and quite frankly that rift has continued to widen under Obama and I suspect will continue to widen under Obama and would still have continued under Romney. Personally I didn't care for and still don't care for either of their policies or methods. It's also become very difficult here to trust anything that is being said. One of my coworkers who is a marine science major took a journalism class. All I can say is that the journalism majors are...well...they're a "special" lot...They pretty much take whatever is spoon fed to them without question. The marine science major is not only at the top of the class but the curve breaker. The scientist questions. As for the journalist? I have no idea.
