    It won't! At least not in our present political climate.
    Compromise/bipartisan politics is viewed as weakness/selling out!
    Another factor is whichever party controls the white house odds are their opposition party will control the congressional house within two years. The voters are afraid of one party controlling both long term.
    In this respect Trump {loves to negotiate} deals and isn't beholden. Essentially he's a long shot and would be attacked by both parties.
    Gridlock is probably here to stay!

      I agree, same old same old. Trump, good or bad would be a catalyst for change. I doubt that he could do worse than the rest of the candidates, but they couldn't do any better than the previous presidents.
