I'm a Paramedic and get to spend 12 to 16 hours a night with a partner inside an ambulance.  As such you get to know them pretty well even if you switch out.

Last night I had a partner who is very much pro-Republican.  And he explained the headline in such a way that I loved it.

Politics came up in passing, and he said "You know, i'm lucky to be a Republican instead of a Democrat this year".  I asked why and was told:

"I get to vote against Mitch twice this year and you only get to once."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
