Rhetoric Lesson: “Evolve”

On March 15, the New York Times published an Article entitled, “You and I Change Our Minds. Politicians ‘Evolve.’” Thus, Senator Rand Paul does not exhort his party to reverse its stand on immigration; he calls on it to evolve on immigration. (not my questionable phrasing; blame the Times.) President Obama’s views on same sex marriage have not changed. They have evolved.

Good lesson in the power of well chosen words. You can find the article here.
