Harry Reid: Election results show Americans want bipartisanship
Advertisements [?]
Source: Las Vegas Sun

The Senate race between Harry Reid and Sharron Angle was characterized by some of the most vitriolic, negative, mudslinging campaigning that took place during a 2010 midterms, marked by bitter divisions across the country. But by the morning after his win, Reid seemed to have forgotten all of that, boiling his promise for the future down to a single concept: bipartisanship.

"I think the main message that we should have received last night ... is that the people of Nevada and the American people want us to work together," he said.

... "Now it's time to get back to work, do what is needed to re-right the economy and create jobs," he said. "I'm hopeful and confident that when the dust settles that the Republicans will no longer want to stop everything and we'll work together."
