Why the Election May Force Republicans to Deal

Joshua Green: "Sure, partisan bickering will endure. There will still be Red America and Blue America, Fox News and MSNBC. But with one big difference: During Obama's first term, and particularly in the last two years, the Republican Party had most of the leverage. The GOP's willingness to reject stimulus, default on the debt, and sabotage the nation's credit rating--threats that shook financial markets--often put the White House at the mercy of the opposition. In Obama's second term, leverage will shift to the Democrats on almost every issue of importance. And that shift has already begun."
