This is your Democratic Party on the "bipartisanship" drugI'm not quite as pessimistic as Taylor Marsh is in her post Why the Current Conversation on Health Care is a Walk on the Hamster Wheel 02/20/10.
But I would be hard put to quarrel with this assessment of hers when it comes to domestic policy:
Never has a president and his political party been given so much and done so little with what they’ve been handed, which includes public support for a Medicare buy-in public option that would make the Democratic Party heroes for another generation and beyond, if they only had the guts to follow the public’s lead, leaving the Republicans and the fairy tale of bipartisanship behind.Tags: bipartisanship, democratic party
