Civility Project disbands

The Civility Project, a two-year bipartisan attempt to get politicians and others to respect one another, closed down after only three members of Congress agreed to its pledge. They were Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn.; Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C.; and Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va.

The project asked people to be civil in public discourse, respect those with whom they disagree and stand against incivility.

Republican Mark DeMoss, who represents prominent evangelical leaders through his Atlanta-based public relations firm, teamed with Democratic consultant Lanny Davis when he launched the project prior to President Barack Obama's inauguration.
