    •  Which would then provide (5+ / 0-)

      three or four different opportunities for obstructionism and grandstanding.  Don't imagine that Congress actually wants to get something DONE.  Apparently there's been significant research documenting (see Nate Silver's article on the decline of "swing" Congressional districts) that what representatives primarily want is to win elections.  They only work if they can have that, and if they can gerrymander their districts so that they're never in any risk of losing an election, then they couldn't care less about doing anything at all.
