    ...that many of the big cheese largely centrist democrats, like Obama and Clinton before him, have taken the lessons of The Big Sort to heart very strongly.  Which is why, I think, that "bipartisanship" ends up being emphasized even when it is clearly a mug's game.  They know the US is teetering on ungovernable divisions (I don't mean CT riots in the streets, just eternal gridlock and an ever more disconnected ogliarchy).  If we have this discussion, and get to that point, it will throw left and right in the pile to fight it out, in the context of utterly disparate social values and a strengthend social contract.  I actually would not bet a dollar in either direction for the outcome, but without some sort of forced marriage of that kind, the more-of-the-same outcome seems...inevitable.  

    Off to workout.  Thanks for coming back, way down here in the comment pile...

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.
