    Which Political Candidate Do You Think Would Be Most Bi-Partisan?

    Just as the title implies which one of the 2 major presidential candidates do you think would be most bi-partisan. Is having a bi-partisan or a leader that actively reaches across the isle an important thing for you?

    Both would probably be about equal in their lack.

    Equal, if I had to guess.

    I think they will both try to be bi-partisan. I think the better question is whether Republicans or Democrats in Congress will be open to bipartisanship. Very difficult to say, on that one.

    If we were still in a time and place where the two parties were at least willing to sit down and talk about stuff regarding this country instead of doing one ups man ship and party politics I think both. But sadly we are in a bog of boisterous blowhards who could care less what we need and more about getting THIER way.

    As long as this lasts we are all screwed.

    Can we define "bipartisan"? Are we talking about "making a genuine effort to reach across the aisle and adopting good ideas that were proposed by the other party"? Or are we talking about "successfully getting some votes from the other party"? Because President Obama would be far better at the former, and Mitt Romney would be far better at the latter. Although in the latter case, this has less to do with the president's proclivities and more to do with the attitude of the congressional leadership in the two parties.

    I think if we could it would be the former

    Romney amassed a solid string of successes working with an 85% Dem. State house in Mass.

    Obama hasn't done it in 3+ years. What indcation is there that he'd start now?

    In that case, although I disagree with Obama on a lot of it, he has been more bipartisan in his efforts. He would have been successful too if he didn't have an obstructionist opposition party.

    Romney was probably the same way when he was governor, but then again, he was quite moderate back then (or is he still?), so when he says he was able to work with a majority Democrat congress in Massachusetts, it's mostly because he aligned with them on major issues, which he doesn't now (or does he?)

    the reps stopped filabustering and pay attention to business.
