President Obama's state of the union address last night included calls for bipartisanship, but amidst a heavily Democratic wish list. He promoted several proposals he's been introducing over the past couple of weeks - free community college, mandatory sick days and parental leave, higher taxes on capital gains, to name a few. These very Democratic proposals were coupled with calls for bipartisanship. Is there any hope of that less than two years before the next Presidential election?
