Its difficult to stay positive when the political divide seems so deep in this country. These three pictures come from a presidential visit to Bellevue, Washington on Monday. I guess we can be satisfied with the idea that we are free to disagree. Our citizens can express their opinions and work to further their causes without asking permission of anyone. Photographically, the AP covered Bush's visit very well. They captured both sides and did a solid job of visual reporting.
