Probably, but it is a pity that this is never in evidence if you  
evaluate policy proposals outside of the political milieu.

I would agree the majority of them are rational and pragmatic when it  
comes to constructing policy that panders to the irrational beliefs of  
their constituents. After all, they have to get reelected. It does not  
do much good for the country though if all this latent rational  
pragmatism almost never results in rational, pragmatic government.
