Can there be bipartisanship in a two party political system?
Is it possible to achieve this - the word compromise for the greater good or is it a futile effort?
It used to be done this way, until Gingrich's House, and the Contract on America. There it was decided that the only way to govern was to have the House, the Senate and the Presidency...and by golly, they did it!

And sometimes compromise leads to disaster, when you give up too much of your values for it.....
