I like the way this guy thinks...
Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall released a letter Wednesday proposing that members of both political parties sit next to each other at this year's State of the Union address instead of the normal seating which is divided along party lines. "As the nation watches, Democrats and Republicans should reflect the interspersed character of America itself," Udall wrote.

I heard about that last night and I think it is a good idea too. I hate the image it presents to the world - the divided sides, one side always sitting on their hands, stony-faced, no matter who is president.

I do like this.

Perhaps the House & Senate could be re-arranged by state instead of by Party. I think the "aisle system" only makes sense in a parlimentary system, which, of course, we don't have.

I'd rearrange the Senate by class. It's somewhat arbitrary, and would ensure that Senators sit near someone who represents a different constituency.

There are always the public school favorites of alphabetically and by height.

I like that idea. A lot.
