Even over those concerns, although, Democratic and Republican senators are inclined to struggle with one another. What explains this discord? Beyond Ideology argues that many partisan battles are rooted in pageant for strength instead of war of words over the rightful function of presidency.


The first booklet to systematically distinguish Senate disputes centering on ideological questions from the massive percentage of them that don't, this quantity foregrounds the position of strength fight in partisan clash. Presidential management, for instance, inherently polarizes legislators who can effect public opinion of the president and his celebration through how they deal with his schedule. Senators additionally take advantage of reliable executive measures and ground debate to embarrass rivals and burnish their very own party’s image—even while the problems concerned are largely supported or low-stakes. in addition, Lee contends, the congressional schedule itself amplifies clash via more and more concentrating on matters that reliably differentiate the events. With the recent president pledging to stem the tide of partisan polarization, Beyond Ideology offers a well timed taxonomy of precisely what stands in his way.
