Former President Whose Election Campaign Was Called The War Room Is Now Co-Chair For A 'National Institute For Civil Discourse'

There was a documentary about Clinton's election effort by the same name.

Anyway, Via Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin's place.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush will serve as honorary chairmen of a new center at the University of Arizona that will focus on civility in political debate, university officials will announce Monday.

The National Institute for Civil Discourse – a nonpartisan center for debate, research, education and policy about civility in public discourse – will open Monday in Tucson. It was created in the aftermath of the Jan. 8 shootings in the city where six people were killed and 13 injured, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Sounds more like a place where politicians can lecture people on how to treat them. Tar and feathers need to be left at the door.

Update: Miss Attila links about stern, meaningless lectures.
