digby's typically elegant summary:
"one party is politically feckless and ineffectual and the other is politically reckless and radical and that's causing gridlock and frustration. . . . There are many problems with governance right now. . . . inability to . . . reform is not caused by the differences between the two parties, but rather their similarities. That's a much, much bigger problem."I think she meant to reference the complementarity of the two Parties, rather than their similarity. But, yes, it is a much bigger problem.
