Dissent among Democratic ranks on Iran: A harbinger for more cross-bench activity?
In this age of polarized politics, toeing the party line has become de rigeur, non-negotiable. Democrats vote Democrat; Republicans vote Republican. Democrats support the president; Republicans oppose him. No deviation allowed. Which is why reports of Democrats opposing the Iran Deal are so remarkable. Thus far, 11 Democrats, across the House and Senate, have said they will vote against approval of the nuclear deal negotiated last month between the P5+1 and Iran.
