Michael Barone offers his analysis how the political battlefield is changing in this cover story in the National Journal.
Michael thinks the close trench warfare of the last decade or so is breaking up:
Now we seem to be entering a new period, a period of open-field politics. It seems to be a time when there are no permanent alliances, when new leaders arise with new strategies and tactics, when the voters, instead of forming themselves into two coherent and cohesive armies, wander about the field, attaching themselves to one band and then another, with no clear lines of battle and no landmarks to rally beside.
