Hosted by

But Scott Walker isn't the only Republican Governor taking positions similar to those of Congressional Republicans, another sign of the increasing polarization of American politics. That's according to Ron Brownstein, political director for the National Journal Group and author of The Second Civil War:  How Extreme Partisanship has Paralyzed Washington and Polarized America.
