Intelligence Squared: The Two Party System Is Making America Ungovernable
The Republican and Democratic parties are entrenched in calcified partisanship, where politics is played as a zero-sum game.  The rise of the Tea Party, liberal backlash, and the exodus of moderate voices from Congress all point toward the public’s growing discontent.  Has our two-party system failed us? Is this a call to change our two-party system of governance?

Moderated by John DonvanDavid Brooks and Arianna Huffington argue for the motion.  Zev Chafets and P.J. O'Rourke argue against.
