Good post RV.

As much as you and me won't like parts of it.....

One day, both sides need to get together, and tell Hannity and Maddow and RedState and Koz to go to hell. When that happens, you'll see some good Right-Leaning stuff, mixed with good Left-Leaning stuff...produce some great AMERICAN stuff like we've done before. I think the last time it happened was Clinton- Gingrich and before that Reagan-O'neill.

But the nation getting balkanized too fast...and eventually a solution like you and McCain suggest will be truly out of reach. Luckily, Europe has gone to hell. Brazil and India despite some of their economic gifts are idiots. China has it's issues. Point being, we've got TIME. I reckon that if we do reach grand bargains within the next 10 years, America owns the world all over again. If we don't get it right in that time period, we are the new Rome burning.

Time is ticking.

PS: Need to figure out how to wrest control of primaries from extremes on both sides. It's not an easy solution...but some things to mentally massage would 'open' primaries for both sides. Now, Repubs don't just cater to the Falwell nuts, and Dems don't just cater to the abortion nuts...the CENTER gets it's butt kissed for a change. Also, look into splitting up electoral votes NOT just in VA or PA where it'll benefit Repubs but even in Texas. Let both sides again....kiss the butts of the Center and not just cater to extremes.
