Mann and Ornstein interview on the Daily Show

These guys hit the nail on the head – all the more remarkable coming from a Jon Stewart interview! The biggest problem (in my opinion) with our current political system is that Congress behaves like it’s a parliament but is constrained by the rules of a presidential framework. You can have either a presidential or a parliamentary system and have it work more or less effectively, but not both!

I’m assigning their book for my Congress course next January.
