    and in my view this is not inconsistent with a core belief in seeking common ground and cooperation as the best means to achieving progress toward those goals

    The poll question sets up a false dichotomy, in my opinion.

    It's funny to me in a way... I remember back in my early feminist days when we used to talk about how it would be so much better if women were in a majority of positions of power, because of their supposed natural tendency to cooperate more and be less competitive and combat-oriented. It was widely believed that this was the key to success in creating peace and prosperity. It was a strong core conviction, I seem to recall. I guess times have changed.
