How can she even be married to him? I don't get it.

This spurred a conversation around Rancho Bilerico about whether or not we could date someone so radically different from our own ideological viewpoints. Could we make a Carville/Matlin-style relationship work? Would we even consider a first date with a person so radically different from our political views?

What about you? Could you do it? Would you? Have you?
