    Yes, because what this country needs is more winner-take-all, no compromise contests. That will surely fix things.

    Seriously, it's good that purple states can have a senator from each party.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    No to court packing. We're not going FDR on the bit.

    Otherwise, fine. Go for it. See how far you get.

    Well, we have 2 Virginias, too. 3 if you separate rural from urban Virginia.
