Consensus vs. Partisanship

One of the most insightful articles to cover the American political
landscape and elections dynamics, is Michael Oreskes’ ‘The Party
Animal Either Plays Well Or Fights Well,’ [available here] in the New York Times Week in Review of Feb 3 2008.  Don’t let its dumb title, presumably assigned by yet another editor that underestimates his readers, turn you off.  The article is among the best and most on-target expositions of the
philosophies underlying today’s candidates, and their historical line.

For another deeper historical tackle at these competing styles is the
book ‘Crusaders vs. Pragmatists’ from Dr. John Stoessinger.
