What's Wrong with Politics?

Stuart Rothenberg: "Yes, there is too much confrontation in this town and too little willingness to compromise on issues. And analysts/authors Norm Ornstein and Tom Mann may well be right in arguing in their book, It's Even Worse Than it Looks, that the problem rests primarily with Republicans who are unwilling to meet Democrats even part of the way on crucial public policy issues."

"But there is no reason to believe that members on both sides of the aisle whose voting records put them toward the ideological extremes of their parties... aren't evaluating bills in terms of what they believe is best for their constituents or for the country."
