Congress: So You Still Think Education Is Bipartisan, Do You?
Well, I've never thought that was particularly true -- even 20 years ago before things got especially ugly there were plenty of partisan cheap shots and ideological obstacles.
This cool new interactive infographic (Agreement Groups in the United States Senate) shows just how separate most Republicans and Democrats are and have been for a long time now (overall, not on education in particular). Mostly I just thought it was a cool graphic.
Are you not entertained? Then check out Ezra Klein's analysis of what a second Obama administration would be able to accomplish with a Republican Congress (which is what we're most likely to get). He seems to think that Republicans would be deflated by failing to win the White House. I think they'd be psyched to be able to pass all sorts of new laws and dare Obama to veto.
