    They do it because it works. There are too many of us who want to hate the other team. Sadly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You and I generally tend to start from different opinions but end up very close once it's all been through the wash. It's not that difficult.

    I'm not even one who generally supports the idea of comprimise but if one is willing to talk through the details, one finds there aren't the differences one would percieve there to be when they started the name calling.

    Granted, the stakes are pretty low here.

    True, but where you're tasked wiht a job, lack of compromise means you don't get the job done. Compromise is not a dirty word, as long as it is compromise and not surrender.

    But like a said before, you're a reasonable fellow.
