Bipartisanship: A Lost Art?

Bob Corker & Mark Warner talk to Jennifer Steinhauer

Two Senators — Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, a one-time citadel of bipartisanship, and Mark Warner, the highest-ranking Democrat on the Senate Committee on Intelligence, who looked into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — assessed the reasons behind the dissolution of compromise in American politics.

The two colleagues and friends, who have collaborated on budget and banking issues for years, will explore the fundamental question vexing the body politic: Can reasonable and thoughtful people of both parties come together to forge solutions to vital issues that impact our nation, including health care, immigration, foreign policy, the criminal justice system and America’s infrastructure? Or are the no-go zones now a permanent feature of American political life? Jennifer Steinhauer of the New York Times moderated the conversation.
