Who's going to give the "voices of reason" a soap box to speak from? Certainly not Karl Rove, not Fox News, not the Tea Party. Who's left that's loud enough?

Absolutely agreed. I think a two party system of REAL parties working to make real compromises is necessary to keep the US moving forward. I just don't see that happening with the current leadership of the GOP today. There's already been grumbling about how they simply "weren't conservative enough." COME ON.
