For the next couple of weeks, you might feel trapped inside two political campaign infomercials – first for the Republicans, then for the Democrats. But when most people step back from the political process, they're not happy with it.
They think it consumes vast resources and produces too little. And that unhappiness extends to former politicians, presidential aides, and chiefs of staff. So what if you could reinvent the American political system and create something that really works? How would you do it? That's the mission of the group No Labels, which has created plans to fix both Congress and the Presidency.
