BiPartisan Summit Brings US Political Stars To New Orleans
 

In the era of claims that the Democratic Congress and the President are not listening to the public, at the time that the Tea Party and the mainstream Republican Party are and likely will be fighting one another for control of the conservative message and the agenda, there might be a ray of partisanship emerging.


That ray might not emanate from the Administration or the current and future assembly of Congressional and Tea Party leaders but from an organization called the BiPartisan Policy Center.

The goal of the Center is to help find common ground and to work for the betterment of the nation.

With this spirit, the Center held a summit in New Orleans at Tulane University on Tuesday dominated by panel discussions bringing together key members of the former Bush and Clinton administrations including political names such as Linda Bird Johnson Robb and her husband Senator Charles Rabb.

Here are scenes from the New Orleans Summit which included a social on Monday evening and a day-long panel focus on the recent elections and developing national trends.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
