Know Your Opposition

Richard Russell offers up a Field Guide To the Elephants which shows just how fragile the Gingrich coalition that makes up the Republican party actually is. He compares it to the Roosevelt Democrat coalition and offers insight into how today's Dems might benefit from the inherent fragility of governing coalitions.

We easily recognize that fragility in the governments of countries which have more than two viable parties. The subtle left/right shifts of interest groups mask it in our own.
