5. I'm honestly a little worried that this dysfunctional polarisation born of extreme partisanship...

is going to be a regular feature of our political discourse. Because...well. Let's be 100% honest here. How many of the things that Republicans are currently expressing about Obama are things we, or many of us, felt about Bush? That we couldn't really imagine how this man ever became President of the United States in the first place, that he was probably illegitimate, that he ought to be impeached, that he (or the forces behind him) were destroying the country? (It's facile to say "yes but the difference is that we were right!" because the basic point is still there.)
