Best Answer

The design of the both houses of the American legislature, that is the Congress and Senate are mechanisms to prevent mob rule or tyranny of the majority. A dominant party may seek to impose its majority votes to force legislation counter to the will of other parties. Party discipline can prevent compromise causing political stalemates/gridlock. Similarly party discipline can compel its members to agree upon and seek bipartisan solutions.
