In writing something I came across a famous old speech of Senator William Fulbright given in the Senate in 1964, a speech that became the basis of his book Old Myths and New Realities. What impressed me was the eloquence and intellectual tone. I wonder if we have anyone in the Senate today who could come up to  this level of thinking. Our current political dialogue seems greatly degraded from this standard.

I wasn't able to access from above URL I used this and it worked:

I haven't read it yet 

Thanks, Allen and Joan.

I copied it to a Word document with a larger font size so I can read it offline.

I remember Fulbright as a Republican we can respect.

Tom, I agree!

Fulbirght's speech shows how far our political discourse has descended into the muck of partisanship.
