Destructor: Who have the Democrats been compromising with? Themselves? No, when they compromise, they compromise with the Republicans. You mean they don't get everything they want? Well, that's the way its supposed to work. Now, turn that around, and see it from the Republicans POV. They don't get everything they want either. That's politics.
RminusQ: Yes they only get "98% of what we wanted" which is a world away from "everything".
whistleridge: Did you happen to read the part where parties didn't develop until 8-10 years AFTER the Constitution was written?After all, if we're going to refer to the halcyon days of yore and the intent of the framers, it should be confined to the actual framing and writing. What came after is what came after, be it 5, 50, or 225 years later.
