Great name. Just great. Regarding the Dem's and Repub's: I just heard a program about that the other day. Where once at least SOME members were friends with people from the 'other' Party (some real good, personal friends) and often could work something out, that is almost completely verboten today ... especially in the House. One step out of line, one vote against your Party Leader, results in threats of reelection funding being withheld and being slammed on TV back home by someone in YOUR party wanting your job. I guess a lot of the reason is due to instant communications, the Internet and the 24 hour News Channels.
