Earlier this week I traveled to central Illinois to speak at a memorial service at Eureka College, my dad’s alma mater, on the 15th anniversary of his death.

As I flew halfway across the country and talked to many of the good people in the heart of America, it struck me how testy or peeved off everyone is about politics.

It seems like everyone’s got a chip on their shoulder.
