Why is the middle ground so hard to find?
Dec 29, 2015 1:00 AM - As someone who covers the 2016 presidential candidates while parenting three young children, I spend half my waking hours keeping an eye on rowdy juveniles who hunger for attention, don't listen, fib often, pick on each other, fight incessantly, refuse to admit they're wrong, and don't know how to behave in public. The rest of the time, I'm tending to my kids. When I fuse my two roles together, I realize that the one gift I owe my children during this holiday season is an apology. I had hopes this year of giving them something special that could last a lifetime. But I wasn't able to deliver.
