Last quote by William A. Galston

It's equivalent to hitting a mule over the head with a two-by-four and then expecting it to nuzzle up to you. In the current climate, it's difficult for me to believe that Democrats are going to come running to Trump and say, O.K., let's negotiate now on health care.' I just don't see that happening.feedback
