Inside the cozy enclaves of GOP bonhomie—hunkered at the tables of see-and-be-seen Washington restaurants—Republican leaders are sourly predicting a party-busting independent presidential bid by a tea-party challenger, like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in 2016.

Please Gawd! Rand Paul:“Sweep the place clean. Limit their terms and send them home.”* And by that he meant Democrats and Republicans alike.*

And yet, the heart of the matter extends beyond the GOP. My conversations this week with two Republican officials, along with a Democratic strategist's timely memo, reflect a growing school of thought in Washington that social change and a disillusioned electorate threaten the entire two-party system.

How horrible! Electing true believers that will tell lobbyists that corporate welfare is over. And will shutter complete federal departments. I have a dream!
