What the country needs is middle class negotiators, go betweens between conservatives and liberals who are polarized in places like Congress. Ted Kennedy was a good one, but we need more. Negotiators who can see both sides of the fence and negotiate give and take. Compromise can work, but only if you can get each polarized side to listen, and not be stranded in their views. You literally have to burn the midnight oil in both camps. And if they still won't negotiate, you have to be prepared to camp out, sleep in both camps. If you can't listen to their realities, you must listen to their dreams, find the middle ground between dreams and reality.
