I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Jesse Helms and John Edwards.

Edit: Wow, not only has someone mentioned them, but it was in the first post.

I am guaranteed $10.00/hr, but could make up to $16.00/hr.  That's not including all the sales games they have.  AT&T likes to throw money around.

Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin, anyone?

One's a centrist Republican, the other a liberal Dem. Not quite 180.

Interparty: Rubio/Nelson
Intraparty: Boxer/DiFi

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

No way Rubio and Nelson are the most bipolar current pair. Besides Kirk and Durbin there's also Grassley and Harkin.
