Lily Gives Arne a Big Hug

From MicroSoftNBC:
Despite the education secretary’s outwardly nonchalant reaction to the NEA vote [calling for his resignation], García says he seemed “hurt” and “surprisingly confused.” In her estimation, he didn’t realize the level of anger he had conjured up.

“Arne Duncan is not a bad man,” she said. “I think he sincerely believes this stuff.”
Despite their differences, says García, they ended the meeting with a hug.
By Lily's measure, Hitler and Stalin were not bad men, either.  After all, they believed the "stuff" they were doing.
