KEYWORDS: BIPARTISANSHIP

“The organizers of a Wednesday conference on bipartisanship are under no illusions: Being bipartisan, they say, is not the same as being nonpartisan.

‘I can tell you one goal that we don’t have: We do not have a goal to create all-encompassing bipartisanship on all things Congressional,’ said Pete Weichlein, executive director of the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress. ‘None of us believe that that is actually the most productive way for the government to conduct itself.’

Weichlein’s group is partnering with the Bipartisan Policy Center to host “Breaking the Stalemate: Renewing a Bipartisan Dialogue” on Wednesday at the National Archives.”
