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.

You assume that there a group doing that in the absence of providing evidence. Theories of that nature commonly called conspiracy theory.
You could use that understanding to update in the direction that this conspiracy theory.

You don't need central groups for the existance of norms of conduct.
I'd like to imagine
A lot of people like to believe in conspiracy theories that have a central group of people being in power. On the other hand that doesn't mean those theories are right.

It's LessWrong jargon. It refers to updating your beliefs in the direction in which the evidence points.

I take it you found Omnilibrium through another source?...
