Is anything out of reach after historic summit with North Korea?
These nuclear summits remind us that we live in a world where a couple of leaders could pick up their red phones and end human civilization.

It’s an appalling reality, but that’s the world we live in so I suppose we need to show gratitude when two leaders are willing to agree not to annihilate each other’s populations #ThankyouforNotNukingUs.
And let’s not forget to thank Dennis Rodman, who, five years ago, tried to tell President Obama that Kim Jong-un was open to talking.
“And Obama didn’t even give me the time of day,” Rodman said on CNN. “I said, I have something to say from North Korea. He just brushed me off.”
And now here we are, talking seriously about not nuking each other.
But I hope it goes way beyond that. If the United States and North Korea – these completely opposite social systems who have never trusted each other – actually do end up with a solid agreement; if the president can shake hands with a really nasty dictator at the price of making peace; is anything out of reach?
What about a summit between the NRA and Michael Bloomberg to keep guns out of the wrong hands?
A summit between the U.S. and Mexico to stop separating families?
Between Democrats and Republicans to build highways and bridges?
If it takes Dennis Rodman to break the ice, I bet he’d do it.
