Why We're Doing This -- Today's News (10/12)

More reasons why we need to join together to take our country back:

  • Unity On The Trail: In an effort to "come together in a bipartisan fashion for a political solution in Iraq," Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) and Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS) will make a joint campaign appearance in Iowa today "to discuss Biden's proposal to divide Iraq into separate regions," CBS reports. 
     
  • Crossing The Aisle: "In a time when the political climate in Washington is extremely stormy," Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) "are trying to maneuver a bipartisan ship through the Republican and Democratic waters," Cookeville (TN) Herald-Citizen reports. The pair has "been adamant about working with all politicians and not just those in their party." Among other efforts, Alexander launched a weekly bipartisan breakfast to bring together Republican, Democrat and Independent senators. 
     
  • Stop This Train, America Wants To Get Off: According to the latest AP/Ipsos poll, 70% of Americans believe the nation is on the wrong track. 
     
  • Quotable: "The issue of Iraq is much too big for politics and is surely bigger than any party or upcoming election. After all, right or left, we are ALL Americans" -- Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS).
