Starting Point, working together, setting politics aside

It is astonishing that political differences have taken over so much that a reality TV show had to do something like this, but I am glad they did.

The veterans I spend my time with manage to do this all the time. They put the "mission" ahead of political views. Just as they did when they risked their lives, the only thing that matter was the guy next to them was "one of them" and political views really didn't matter that much.

They were willing to die for one another but most people in this country can't manage to have a civil discussion that gets to the point instead of pointing fingers.

Political parties come together to build home for veteran
October 17th, 2012
Ty Pennington explains

Ty Pennington is known for building homes for deserving people. We've been following his work as he brought both political parties together for one goal, to build a home for a military family. It's a plan both parties could agree on.

The plan called for half of the home to be built, you'll remember, at the Republican National Convention, the other half of the home was constructed at the Democratic National Convention. Today the home comes together. It's donated, it's finished and it goes to John Jones II and his wife, Tanisha. They're going to get that home at 12:00 noon today.

This morning on "Starting Point," Pennington talks to Soledad about the journey to getting the house produced, and the Jones family explain how thrilled they are to received the house.
