But that is exactly the truth. Middle ground, or whatever you want to call it, does recognize value in opposing positions, and that there are clear and defensible reasons to hold any of them, even if they are in disagreement with our own. It's this really cool new thing.

Now, whether or not the position referred to - in the post and quoted above - is actually "middle ground" is debatable. It's certainly somewhere in between "fire him yesterday!" and "he's doing great!"
