Entrenched Arguments and Idea Inertia

It's rare to find someone who is capable of changing their minds on issues that they have argued long and hard for, especially in politics, where journalists are scathing of "about turns". It seems to me that every political party brings its own "idea inertia", for good or bad. In Interactive Democracy the Political Parties are essential in order to form a government, but ID as a process, involves many more diverse people, unrestrained by party policy and the chief whip. It may also encourage politicians to "think out of the box".
