South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint (R), on the political divide in Washington:
DeMint said political Washington is incapable of compromise, comparing it to two opposing teams on a football field.
"You can't imagine a coach saying, 'Go out there, compromise with those guys,' " DeMint said. "You don't do that because the other team has a goal, going in the opposite direction of where you're going, and they are there to beat you."
"And I hate to say it, but in a lot of ways that's where we are in Washington."
