This week’s episode of the Washington Monthly show on BloggingheadsTV features Nancy LeTourneu as a guest as we discuss the plaudits being given the John Boehner for resigning his speakership, and the climate in Congress as it lurches forward to another probable shutdown crisis in December. We also talk a bit about the Democratic presidential nomination contest, and why Democrats don’t seem to be quite as self-destructive as Republicans.
