Barbara Boxer found a buddy

Another Democrat has found a Republican to sit with at the State of the Union tomorrow night. 

Democratic US Senator Barbara Boxer will sit with a Republican Congressman, John Mica of Florida.  She's chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.  He's chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.  They can sit around and discuss high speed rail, gasoline taxes, and water projects together.

Senator Boxer says, “I am very pleased to sit with Chairman Mica. We both have responsibility for the transportation bill and water infrastructure legislation. We have already started working together and we thought it would be nice to sit together to show that there’s not just cooperation between Republicans and Democrats, but also between the House and Senate.”
