Ted vs. the headlines

Not the news stories, the actual headlines.

Specifically, a headline in the metro section of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, from Thursday, December 16, 2010:

Dayton, GOP leaders begin with goodwill
The two sides said they seek common ground amid an ideological gulf.

The story itself, I assume, is about our new governor (finally!) beginning to work with the GOP in the state senate and house. But I didn't read the actual story, because I stopped at that sub-headline. Take a moment to parse its meaning.
