Why Joe Klein's idea isn't going to work.

I like Joe Klein, but his latest column edges toward the nonsensical.  Our Democracy isn't breaking down because of the process or arcane Senate rules.  It's breaking down because one group of people (Conservatives), believe that the other group (Liberals/Progressives) have no right to govern once they've been voted into power.  

When one side is saying that the other doesn't have a fundamental right to govern, Mr. Klein's idea's become meaningless.
