I think (or hope) that people are getting sick of the hard line types. I try to avoid political talk because I don't really fit into any party. Both sides have a tendency to piss me off because they get so wrapped up in their parties; they forget to look for a viable solution.
When it comes to domestic affairs, I lean a bit republican. International issues, I'm certainly more democrat (if you could even call it on either side). I personally decide on the specific issue. No one party is going to come up with all the solutions. I think that when this country gets to the place where they want to solve the issues vs. just being 'right', solutions will come much quicker. I feel the biggest resistance in that process is people too fixed on staying with their party. It doesn't help that most political debates usually end up with the arguments of each side's fanatical groups (Ultra liberal's "free for all" vs. Ultra conservative's "not in my house" attitude).
Maybe out of context here... but hasn't a universal lesson always been taught that the correct path usually lies in the middle? Play the string too tight; it will break. Play it too loose; it won't play at all.
