My wife and I are both children of the Nixon years, so yeah, we understand political dysfunction. But, we have seen times when a president and the Congress worked together to get things done. My wife raised an interesting point. If you were born twenty-five years ago and became politically aware at eighteen, then you’ve never seen Congress work with a president. You’ve seen seven years of Congress bent on thwarting the president. All you’ve ever known is dysfunction; never the two parties working together. With role models like that, is it any wonder we’ve lost faith in our politicians?
