Strange bedfellows

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrinch (R-GA) have joined together in an effort to build a bi-partisan coalition for cost-saving and lifesaving health care legislation. The duo appeared together at a “Ceasefire on Health Care” event sponsored by Pfizer and American University.

This is a stark reversal for Clinton and Gingrinch who just a few years ago would have opposed something simply to be on the side opposite the other.

All the news from the event isn’t positive for Centrists. Gingrinch stated that he’s “not quite sure I’m ready to join the mushy middle,” a shot at those of us who believe that you can stand for something without being in the extremes of the ideological spectrum.
