Al and Tipper Gore, the Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon of Washington, announced today that they are separating, after 40 years of marriage. (If we definite “progressivism” as an openness to change, then there is arguably no moral decision more “progressive” than the choice to respect your own future happiness, and that of the people long closest to you, over the tug of old memories and vaguely sourced feelings of guilt, obligation and censure.)
