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.

The Colorado congressional delegation chose to sit together at last year’s State of the Union and will follow suit this year. The four Democrats (Reps. Diana Degette, Jared Polis and Ed Perlmutter, as well as Sen. Michael Bennet), and three of the four Republicans (Reps. Scott Tipton, Cory Gardner and Mike Coffman) also have a monthly bipartisan breakfast.

Sen. Mark Udall is absolutely right - #sittogether.

Sens. Lieberman and Collins worked together last year to bring an end to the Army’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy. They have also worked together on multiple pieces of national security legislation in the past as the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs. #sittogether

A man after our own hearts. Obviously. #sittogether


The President “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information on the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

This particular time, it’s happening tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET. 

Congress - #sittogether.

Having just gotten back from a learning tour in Liberia and Ghana where they were able to see the current humanitarian situation in western Africa firsthand, Reps. Tom Marino and Hank Johnson have decided to extend their time learning with and from each other by choosing to #sittogether at the State of the Union.

Ladies in red! Sen. Mikulski is the longest-serving female senator in the Democratic party. Sen. Hutchison is the longest-serving female senator from the Republican party. At this year’s State of the Union, these senior senators — and members of the Senate Committee on Appropriations — will put party labels aside and #sittogether.

If Snape & Dumbledore can unite to defeat Voldemort, Congress can #sittogether

Who doesn’t love Bert & Ernie? Congress could learn something from these two lifelong pals. We’re not asking for forever friends, we’re just hoping Congress will #sittogether for one night. 

Kermit & Missy Piggy have an…interesting relationship. We aren’t asking Members of Congress to #stalkoneanother. We just want them to #sittogether - one night.

Garfield and Odie don’t talk, but they hug. We don’t expect Congress to hug, but we expect them to talk. #Sittogether.

Simon and Garfunkle famously broke up in 1970 after their hit album The Bridge Over Troubled Water. Congress, to our knowledge, hasn’t recorded any hits in quite awhile. #Sittogether and try to make some magic.
