Letter: JHB showed courage


JHB’s vote to impeach the President, knowing that she would be soundly criticized by those among her party who mouth blind partisanship (followers, not leaders), took strength, courage, and a strong sense of right and wrong. Her vote helps to open the door to the possibility that members of Congress, either Senate or House, Republican or Democrat, might find paths to work together “across party lines.” Her vote puts a thoughtful sense of justice ahead of knee-jerk reaction.
