Weekly Question: Is Compromise the New Swear Word in Politics?

It’s sad, but Washington has become so polarized that it seems nearly impossible for both sides to move forward.  Fareed Zakaria of CNN gives a few explanations as to why our government has come to this place.  But I think he also misses a few, like the general culture in America that is constantly evolving.  So here’s the question: what do you think has led to the extreme polarization that exists today?  Is it the boomer generation?  Special interest groups?  The rise of religious interest in politics?  Growing diversity in America?  Sound off, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
