BEYOND HYPER-PARTISANSHIP, READ: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' E-mail Friday Working "To Tone Our Rhetoric and Partisanship Down"

The night before being shot, Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-CD8) sent a personal e-mail to Kentucky's about-to-resign Secretary of State (and incoming director of Harvards' Institute of Politics) Trey Grayson, saying that she would love to talk with him about toning down the rhetoric and partisanship.  Let us hope that that conversation can still take place in the not-too-distant future. 

For his part, Grayson says that Saturday's assasination attempt on Giffords - and murder of six - will prompt him to "redouble (his) efforts" to highlight moderation and working across party lines.
