“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”

As to what Will Rogers said, I tend to agree, with one caveat. The difference between good judgement and bad judgement often depends on who is doing the judging.
For example, did the Republicans yesterday exercise good judgement in passing the new tax bill?
