Should it be noted that both sources cited seem to use this term sarcastically? --18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:23, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. I checked each of the sources; the Time magazine articles is 20-years-old, and the other two use the term with no little sarcasm. The Economist article in fact openly mocks this idea, noting that each party never talk to one other.
There is little to no evidence supporting the assertion that the US Senate is the "World's greatest deliberative body". Such a term is partisan and lacking neutrality. How is possible to call a political institution 'great' without any reasoning? Maybe the Australian Senate is greater? Or the British House of Lords? Or the French Sénat? I am removing this arcane, biased, and inaccurate phrase. Crazy Eddy (talk) 14:24, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
