Julie draws the connection between John Gottman’s four horsemen of the apocalypse–how they predict divorce–and today’s political decision-making. We talk about decisions that are compromise versus those that are consensus, outlining and describing what true consensus requires and how it is important for the functioning of couples, organizations, and government. We use the West Wing episode, The Supremes, to characterize the importance of consensus decisions.
