Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"their fetish for bipartisanship and compromise" is really just the camouflage of their neo-liberal adoration of wealth and power. Were Hillary to actually win and have a Democratic House I would expect her to do all in her power to stall and delay any real progressive agenda that threatened the financial sector and simultaneously demonize and demoralize the progressives until she could shed the burden of having both Houses Democratic, as Obama did between 2008 and 2010.

I will feast on my own words should I be proven wrong. Come the day!
