How about updating in a direction where things aren't simply about Republicans scoring on Democrats and vice versa?

I am not sure what you mean by updating in a direction.

I am interested in the mechanics for the tit for tat at this level. Is there some leadership group in the parties keeping scores and threatening retribution? If this is happening - somehow the press isn't aware or doesn't report on it.

Some pundits have hinted that there is an understanding that you don't go after the previous administration criminally (in the US, of course in banana republics this happens all the time).

Changing the fundamental rules of the senate on a party line vote must also have had an understanding.

I'd like to imagine there is a complicated game theory being played out. But maybe that only works at nation-state level and not in politics.
