Washington Post: Return the Power to the People

I was hoping for an opportunity to demonstrate that Democrats can be dangerously partisan as much as Republicans, and just then I found this story. Efforts to heal American democracy, including reforms of campaign finance and state redistricting, face strong opposition from both sides of the aisle. California Democrats may have real concerns about the political ramifications of a mid-cycle redistricting plan, but any plan that reduces the political obstacles to effective governance is good for all citizens. This is one reform that I am glad to see the Governator championing.
