From the perspective of the UK this so-called 'division' is pretty amusing.
(and we got parties doing similar so this is no sneer, more a tragedy shared)
I see basically two lots of politicians who ape each other almost identically. Personally I'd rather the Dems won but IMO really there are too many
Some individuals have quirks and differences or a 'name' to stand out with but many of each party could very easily be in the other. What and where
is the difference, really?
Besides marginal tax policy differences they all basically believe in heavily skewing policy to benefit the already super wealthy and privileged.
The two candidates in the election made a great game here on our TV in a couple of shows where people here and in the USA played the 'who said....'
game. Kerry sounded like Bush sounded like Kerry sometimes.
The two (basically very) right-wing parties slug it out with little between them in terms of difference .....and the term 'liberal' as abuse is such
a sad and hilarious perversion.
It appears that now that most policy is so similar with only marginal differences the contest was decided on who was the most churchy and the most
Moral politicians?! Pleaase.
