ALAN KEYES — Many constitutional aims and purposes seem to be forgotten in this era of purely self-serving, factional politics. Among them are the aims and purposes of the "separation of powers." Overacted partisanship means that the distinction of powers makes less and less difference, especially when it comes to relations between Congress and the president.

When the same party controls both branches, people expect the two branches to be fellow travelers.... (more)
