How about it Chris, will you be just another obstructionist Republican in congress or will you try to work with the President? The house in particular has voted on 33 bills to defund healthcare and nearly that many abortion bills. Will you succumb to the tea party or are you willing to work across the aisle and have the courage to do what's right not just pander to your right wing base?

Oh Yeah, Chris will be working with President Romney!

A new Direction is right Chris. That does not mean you. You are the old direction.

There will be a new President and I think Linda can work with him just fine.
