When did we become such a forgiving people?

Political grudges don’t always last forever. Look at Albio Sires and Frank Guarini. When Sires, a young West New York gadfly, was the Republican candidate for Congress in 1986, he hurled some fairly heavy criticism of Guarini, then a four-term Democratic Congressman. But more than twenty years later, Sires is now a loyal Democrat, and yesterday he praised Guarini’s fourteen years in Congress when he introduced a bill to name a post office in Jersey City after his onetime rival.
