View Here : Limits Of Bi Partisanship
As the White House gets back on the offense today, hopefully it has learned a valuable lesson: bipartisanship makes for a handy campaign pitch, but as a governing strategy, it has its limits.
The Limits of Bi Partisanship There's a new air in Washington and the president is attempting to usher in an era of bi partisanship . Signaling he'd meet critics part way on health care, President Barack Obama said Tuesday he's willing to sign a bill even if it doesn't deliver everything he pursued through a year of grinding effort at risk of going down as a dismal failure.
The call for bipartisanship is laudable, and it is indeed a welcome relief. However, the authors of the report do not see that, in the context of the present framing of national debate, a governing consensus is not possible, because none of the conflictive political bands of the moment has an understanding and a proposed national project that could possibly enlist the support of the majority.
