Partisanship

I have to admit, the first time I heard then Candidate Obama talk about crossing party lines and aiming for bipartisanship, I knew I would never trust him. None of his ideas even sound remotely centrist, except of course where politicians on the left side of the aisle are schmoozed by big business. It seems every week, another democrat announces that they will not be seeking re-election in this midterm election. To be honest, I've made the correlation to rats jumping off the Titanic. There aren't many in America that don't realize, life as we knew it, is over. Oh, I know the stock market will rally to an extent, now that the upper Middle Class got out with the crash and half their money, and 401K's sunk, and well, there will be a surge now that the money is back in the hands of the upper elite, but the political scenery is changing. I don't know if it will be as dramatic as 1994, but health care reform and lack of accountability in the White House I think brought the change to Congress back then, and it's looking likely this time, also. I've really wondered if this extreme partisanship on the part of Clinton and Obama is just to give the republicans, "their turn" to keep the theatre going. Either that, or these two are political "double agents!" I really believe, President Obama's partisanship has done more for the republican party and a potential 3rd party than it's done for the democratic party or "we the people."
