Broken government: What needs to be done to turn it around?

All week, CNN has gone in-depth to look at America's broken government. Political analyst David Gergen believes that the moderate center is being hollowed out, as voters take more extreme stances and old civic ties fade.

North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue, a Democrat, suggests that Congress should suspend elections for 2 years so members stop thinking about getting re-elected and start working together to find solutions for the country. Navarette uses this as a bouncing point in his CNN.com piece that gives ten reasons as to why our government is broken.

David Gergen and Ruben Navarrette join American Morning today to talk about why they describe the government as broken and what the government and the American people need to do to put it back together again.
