Third Way's Bipartisan Seating Campaign

If these odd pairings can claw, jab, and snipe at one another yet still accomplish their goals, why can’t Congress? We need to show Congress that bettering America is more important than their short-sighted political posturing.

To start, we think they should #sittogether during the State of the Union. Come up with your own odd couple and upload it to the Tumblr with a short sentence telling Congress to #sittogether.

And you know-it ain’t fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract.
