In this party, you don't vote FOR a President, you defensively vote AGAINST the other candidate. You choose 'lesser' evils. If you give the Presidency to one half, you generally try to give Congress to the other half to minimize the damage either half can do to you.
Because NEITHER half is interested in what the public wants, the single party therefore generates a lot of unhappiness. This dissatisfaction guarantees regular and routine trades of where they hold 'power.'
They are also sometimes referred to as Tweedeldee and Tweedeldum but due to the indistinguishable nature of both pairs, it has never been clear how they should be paired.
+ over-promise and fail to deliver.
+ ignore what the public wants.
+ promise to cure all your problems.
+ blame all problems on the other half.
+ obfuscate when asked pointed questions.
+ sell themselves to lobbyists.
+ scream for campaign reform when 'out of power'.
+ obstruct the formation of any 3rd-party and resist its participation in campaign activities (e.g., televised debates).
+ prevent any individual really worthy of the Presidency from receiving their 'party' nomination.
