This time, it really does seem that the political center is under intense pressure – from left and right – all over the Western world.In the United Kingdom, David Cameron's center-right government faces a revolt over his country's membership in the European Union. In Germany, Angela Merkel's broad left-right coalition is being battered for her handling of migration.Across Europe, governments that occupy the center ground find themselves struggling against energized ideological movements from right and left.Hillary Clinton faces the most serious left-wing challenge to a mainstream Democrat in decades.The party's establishment is now coalescing around Marco Rubio, who, when elected, was described as "the first senator from the tea party".After the end of the Cold War, political parties in the West started moving to the center – among others, Britain's Labour Party, the Italian and French Socialist parties and America's Democrats.The U.K. will not leave the European Union.
