Craig Depken, at Division of Labour, posts a chart to show the increase in partisan voting in Congress with all of one party opposing the other party. He posits that increased gerrymandering of safe districts has allowed the House members to safely vote the party line. Add in the partisan wars that have been growing ever since the 1980s and we've gotten to where we are now. If people think that a President Hillary Clinton could sooth the partisan waters, they're sadly mistaken. Perhaps a President John McCain could since he often sides with the Democrats now. Although, the Republicans in Congress may vote unanimously against a President McCain.
