The reports of partisanship’s death…

are greatly exaggerated.

Barack Obama’s first term may be less partisan than Bill Clinton’s and George W. Bush’s were (I’m not sure how they could be more partisan), cialis buy order but the fundamental splits in this country are not going to go away any time soon.

Abortion, viagra generic troche guns, immigration, taxes, socialized medicine, stem cells, religion in the public square; issues like these don’t have a middle ground (or, at least, not much of one).

So far, Obama has had the luxury of being all things to all people (although the gays are starting to think maybe he isn’t exactly who they thought he’d be).

But, after tomorrow, President Obama starts making decisions and those decisions are going to piss some people off. What will be interesting to see is how often those decisions piss off the very people who elected him.
