Yes, yes, I went from supporting Rand Paul to John Kasich to briefly flirting with Trump to settling on Cruz. Laugh at my fickleness all you want.

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.

Most of the good ones have been said already, but here are some others:

Max Baucus/Conrad Burns, Mitch McConnell/Rand Paul, and Harry Reid/John Ensign (lol).

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.
