An international perspective on US politics:

CNN: You just came back from Davos. What's the view of world leaders of this American budget problem?

Zakaria: There is great unease not just about the numbers ... the real unease is about the sense that Washington is no longer working, that you cannot count on the United States to be able to make hard decisions, to sort its own internal affairs out. One European CEO said to me, what worries us more than anything else is that problems you're facing now are the same problems you were facing 10 or 15 years ago.
