    Representative Nielsen suggests that Democrats are cutthroats while Republicans are accommodating. His few anecdotes to the contrary, I think most people understand that both parties will take measures to keep themselves in power when they can (see, Bush v. Gore). Representative Nielsen sounds like a partisan to me.

    I think it has more to do with the end of the Cold War and the passing the Greatest Generation from the political scene. They know that ultimately we are all, in fact, in this together.

    I lived in Indiana in '84, and voted for Frank McCloskey. Your account of that wild election is factually inaccurate. And that makes me discount everything else you've said here.
