Keeping One's Head

There are people that I work with that I feel have exceptionally good judgment. What do I mean by this?  I mean principally that their judgment is validated by good results.  They seem to do or say just the right things that have positive outcomes.  And this judgment is generalized in application, not just centered on one activity or specialty.  They are, in one word, capable.  What I find interesting is that while I recognize this quality, I disagree with them in one specific area--politics.  I question their political judgment.  It's a mystery to me how my basic evaluation of their judgment doesn't change despite this significant divergence of views. Yet, in a surprising way, I have come to feel that since I trust their judgment overall, then their political stance must be profoundly right for them (though not necessarily for me).  I respect their right to hold their own opinions. This approach is widely held.  This seems to me very American and one reason I think that God continues to bless America.
