Friday, December 19, 2014

We bid adieu to the four-year era of subdivided government – at least until the Democrats reclaim the U.S. Senate in 2016 and once again grind gears with a Republican House. Like many a political swan song, subdivided government’s grand farewell was tainted by grandstanding.
