Leber: My big fat bipartisan romance: How we choose to make it work

With the 2012 presidential election mere weeks away, politics are everywhere. They're on the Internet, they're at the office, and they're in the bedroom.

Earlier this week, I read an article called "How Fox News Destroyed My Marriage."

The story, actually titled "The Bipartisan Marriage," has very little to do with Fox News and a lot to do with respect.

The story caught my eye because I, too, am in a bipartisan relationship.

"It's really subjective," said Joe, when I asked him to rank himself on a political scale. That's the lawyer in him talking, I think.

He acquiesced eventually. Though I won't say exactly where we determined each of us fell on the spectrum, I will say neither of us is an extremist.
