ARCHIVES

Does it seem like the political situation in Congress is more polarized than ever? National Journal reports that's because it is. Last year, every Senate Republican compiled a voting record more conservative than every Senate Democrat. And the House was nearly as divided, with an overlap between the parties less than at any time in the 30 years the magazine has been analyzing congressional votes.

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
