this is how it should be done
The Dodd and I are engaged in a mightily civil discussion on the validity of claims of ties between Iraq and al Qaeda, and the merits of the Administration's case on Iraq, in a discussion thread in response to one of his posts.
While it's clear that we don't agree, I have to say that I'm absolutely refreshed by the downright polite and reasonable nature of the discussion, something I've often found lacking in responses from hawks in the past.
Update: Stephen den Beste wonders, "Why is it that those on the antiwar left can't disagree with someone without at least one ad hominem?" I point to this very thread as an example of mutually respectful discourse.
