When I agreed to host a Living Room Conversation about money in politics I did not realize how many issues the conversation might touch on. At first, when we engaged on other issues, I worried about getting side tracked. Then I realized that it was ok to get sidetracked. That was part of us getting to know each other. And occasionally when these other conversations looked like they could be a whole additional conversation we agreed to set the issue aside for now, with the understanding that if we wanted to have a future conversation about it we could.
