    If you look at Israel (or at Italy or France in the post-WWII years), that would suggest that more parties would only make the paralysis worse.

      the Netherlands, Canada, etc, etc, etc.

      The one thing more viable parties does is give voters a place to go to get representation.  In the US, parties seem not to care about silly little things like the electorate.  Might be kind of nice to see them have to cobble together some coalitions.

      Might also make life a heap harder for the folks spreading all those dollars around in DC.
