Washington Iced

This week’s Time magazine cover:
WHY WASHINGTON IS FROZEN

Time contributor Peter Beinart on three ways to break the cycle.

1. More New Hampshires. If every state took New Hampshire’s example to heart—and allowed independents to vote in presidential primaries and congressional ones … more moderate candidates win. The result? “A bipartisan rebirth.”
2. Former Crossfire Hosts Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson might like this one: More Crossfires. Create new talk shows and blogs in which liberals and conservatives interrogate one another’s views – like … CNN’s Crossfire.
3. More Ross Perots. A powerful third-party voice demanding that both parties take real steps to solve problems. Republicans would still disagree profoundly…, but they would feel greater pressure to amend rather than kill them.
