I don't buy into traditional two-label partisanship, because most political issues have more than two sides. How could they not? Congress has 535 members with varying views and agendas, though said agendas aren't usually in plain view. Add the lobbyists, their clients, and the executive branch -- and we have a tangled mass of views and agendas.
Some call me a "wonk," a breed that's not in very high social demand. Maybe I am fascinated by corporate and political corruption. Maybe hours do fly when I read GAO reports. Is that cause for name-calling?
In grad school I studied public policy. In law school I studied, well, law. How could I not seek to compel politicians to pull this nation out of the hand basket?
