  •  You are correct - long term (0+ / 0-)

    Many, if not most, states have been severely gerrymandered.  Registering and motivating voters, providing good candidates on the national, state, and local levels, increasing voter participation in the process; these are all excellent long-term solutions.  

    But we will be dealing with a lame duck session beginning now, and potential gridlock beginning in January.  A House coalition would address those problems now, in the short term.  We can still work to change the complexion of the House and Senate for 2014 and beyond even if we create a coalition in the House today.
