William Connelly, the John K. Boardman Professor of Politics at Washington and Lee, explores issues of partisanship in an oped piece published Tuesday in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The piece is based on a presentation that Connelly gave during a Homecoming panel discussion on the election earlier this month. Writes Connelly:

Our Constitution invites constructive partisanship, including often cacophonous, cantankerous, contentious partisanship. The principled differences between our two great parties — whether over the Iraq war, immigration, global warming, or regulating financial markets — do matter.
