Veteran CBS News journalist Bob Schieffer hit the campus of the University of Virginia on Monday.
He talked to a political science class about the political divide in Washington and had a message of compromise.
Schieffer said in his 50 plus years in news, he's never seen such a partisan split in Congress.
The message he said he hoped to convey to students was that compromise, from grounds to the Capitol, is the best way to get things done.
When asked what the crowning achievement of his career is, Schieffer responded that he's still here and doing what he loves.
