Roundtable Discussion: Is Partisanship a Bad Thing?
“Partisanship, for lack of a better word, is good. Partisanship is right. Partisanship clarifies, it cuts through, and it captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit,” says R. Shep Melnick, Thomas P. O’Neill, Jr. Professor of American Politics, during a discussion of the virtues of partisanship in the American political system. Fellow panelists include Nancy Rosenblum, the Senator Joseph Clark Professor of Ethics in Politics and Government Theory at Harvard University; and Russel Muirhead, the Robert Clements Associate Professor of Democracy and Politics at Dartmouth University.
