Abbe Gluck with a great LA Times oped today, which concludes:
Yes, Congress is more gridlocked and partisan than at any time in our history. Yes, the era of the “Schoolhouse Rock” legislative process is dead.

Instead, the answer should be to change our political culture and find ways for government to function again.
