Krauthammer: The System Works

Columnist Charles Krauthammer wrote an interesting column countering the claim that our political system is  broken.

Of all the endlessly repeated conventional wisdom in today's Washington, the most lazy, stupid, and ubiquitous is that our politics is broken. On the contrary. Our political system is working well (I make no such claim for our economy), indeed, precisely as designed - profound changes in popular will translated into law that alters the nation's political direction.

The process has been messy, loud, disputatious, and often rancorous. So what? In the end, the system works. Exhibit A is Wisconsin. Exhibit B is Washington itself.
