I think the infighting will continue. There really isn't any difference in Republicans and Democrats these days other than the fact that they are fiscally irresponsible with different portions of our gov't. As long as this continues, there will still be a sect of the country that supports the Tea Party. However, the Tea Party can't survive without the money placing that (R) next to their name gets them. So they are kind of stuck together. Regardless of how much press the Tea Party gets it's still a grass roots, district by district movement that needs some sort of financial support. The Republican Party is the only group that can do that for them. In other words, we're screwed.
