    Whenever both parties want something like NAFTA they pick and choose who will vote for it on each side by who is safe for relection in thier districts...those that arent safe get to vote no so they can go home and rant...SEE HOW I PROTECTED YOU...blah they are all full of chit

    I believe it is truly bipartisan if, and only if, a MAJORITY of the members of each party votes in favor of the bill in question.
