    True, we've just watched governance in the House break down, humiliatingly, under John Boehner, because of radical factions' refusal to compromise. But, have hard-line takeovers of statehouses in recent years, including Michigan and Wisconsin, "failed"? Some people think the more radical legislation that's passed there, won't represent the new status quo, because it won't survive the courts. I hope they're right. Unfortunately, it's also possible--as with many historical conquests--that slowly, over generations, a new cultural mainstream will be born, which replace the existing one from the right.

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
