    history is littered with examples of politicians who said they would never ever do X, Y, and Z, only to end up doing X, Y, and Z.  But politicians love to be loved, and they live for getting praise for being good.  I'm for anything that might encourage more of such behavior in the future.

    But while we brandish the carrot, we should always keep the stick close at hand.
