Tom Vesey hit it the nail on the head in his opinion piece this weekend when he said:

People usually don’t mind disagreements with somebody who listens to your views with respect, involves other people in his decision-making and isn’t always 100 percent convinced he is right.  Such a person is far more likely to find the best solutions to a community’s problems, far more likely to satisfy more citizens in the process, and far more likely to heal divisions.

Unfortunately, we have seen many examples both pre and post election where when one does not agree with anothers viewpoint personal attacts are resorted to (as seen by this recent post on Progressive Minds.)
