left mom, moderate mom, right dad, and a canadian . . .

Elizabeth and I have another episode of Right Mom/Left Mom coming up (this time, we are tackling the relationship between the evangelical church and the Republican party).  I still need to upload that one, but in the meantime I thought I would share a chat I did last night for Yahoo! and ABCnews.com.  They invited several of us from varying political perspectives to share our reactions live during the DNC.  As you can see, we ended up having a lively discussion that sort of took precedence over watching the convention, but I think the results were interesting.  As always, I enjoy a political dialogue where different people from different political leanings can share ideas respectivefully.  Richard Hailey is a conservative who really knows his stuff, and it was great to banter with him a bit. Diana Stone is a miltary wife and a moderate, and I appreciated her pragmatic approach to politics. (Incidentally, Diana does a fantastic column on adoption over at Babble).  I also loved hearing Catherine Connors perspective as a Canadian – I think it’s always fascinating to look at our political system from an outside lens. I’d love to hear your perspective on some of the topics we cover!
