FILE - In this June 25, 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama wipes perspiration from his face as he speaks about climate change at Georgetown University in Washington. In one five-hour stretch in Washington this week, the nation's political paralysis and polarization was on stark display for everyone across the country to see. First, on Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, and Republicans in several southern states moved to impose voter identification laws that previously had been blocked under the law and that are blamed for helping energize growing minority communities against their party. The decision devastated Democrats. Hours later, President Barack Obama announced a series of executive actions to combat climate change. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
