Something as mundane as raising the federal government's debt ceiling turned into an almost-Armageddon. Conservatives blame it on a free-spending government. Liberals say it's the fault of radical Tea Party republicans. And everyone around the world was astonished as America’s partisan political divide almost resulted in a financial train wreck that would have shaken the world's economy.
