There is very little hope that the United States or anyone else can do much to stabilize Iraq, Libya, Syria or Egypt. Stabilizing Iran, and bringing it back into the family of nations, is much more possible. That would be a 'win' for both sides.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

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.
