Washington (CNN) - In another attempt at bipartisan outreach, President Barack Obama joined three of the best golfers in the United States Senate for a bipartisan round of golf on Monday.
The foursome included Colorado Democrat Mark Udall and Tennessee Republican Bob Corker, who were ranked as the top two golfers in Congress by Golf Digest as part of its 2011 list of Washington's Top 150 Golfers. At the time, both Udall and Corker had a handicap around two.
Washington (CNN) - Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall's idea of having members of both political parties sit next to each other at this year's State of the Union address is gaining traction - some positive and some negative.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Udall's "thoughtful suggestion" is worth "serious consideration."
(CNN) - Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall released a letter Wednesday proposing that members of both political parties sit next to each other at this year's State of the Union address instead of the normal seating which is divided along party lines.
"As the nation watches, Democrats and Republicans should reflect the interspersed character of America itself," Udall wrote. "Perhaps, by sitting with each other for one night, we will begin to rekindle that common spark that brought us here from 50 different states and widely diverging backgrounds to serve the public good."
