Question of the Day
Two senators from different parties say they’ll skip tradition and sit together during President Obama’s State of the Union address.
The decision by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Democrat Charles E. Schumer of New York comes amid calls for greater civility in political discourse after the fatal shootings Jan. 8 at a political event in Tucson, Ariz.
Mr. Schumer says he and Mr. Coburn hope other lawmakers will follow their example and skip the partisan seating arrangements that usually come with joint sessions of Congress. Mr. Schumer says it’s a symbolic move, but one he hopes will help set a more civil tone.
The State of the Union address is set for Jan. 25.

But Keith Urbahn, who works for Mr. Rumsfeld, says the subject matter makes the idea a “non-starter.”
“The Good Wife” has had occasional real-life cameos, including Vernon Jordan and Lou Dobbs.
