Sharpton and Gingrich Together For The Same Cause: Education!

Who says that political adversaries can't come together for a common cause. Yesterday Rev. Al Sharpton and Newt Gingrich along with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan visited Philadelphia schools as part of the "Listening and Learning Tour." The goal of the multi city tour is to bring attention to Education Reform in our country, which I think is far more important that Health Care Reform at this point in President Barack Obama's tenure as President. However, in our President's defense he did suggest that the trio get together for the tour.

The great thing about the trio visiting the schools is that they went to some of the poorer schools in the city, which had to be uplifting for the students. Sharpton is really trying to make his voice relevant, which is commendable on his part. The Philadelphia Inquirer provides an additional update on the tour.
