Well, what I am seeing two parties dropping anchor and refusing to budge from their positions, which belies the overwhelming judgment of those here who emphatically insist that it's only the GOP that won't compromise. Neither party is blameless in the stalemate by my estimation. When is the last time Harry Reid talked about compromise?
It's the problem with politics today - the constituency elects hard-nosed idealists and looks at candidates willing to compromise as weak.
