For an early idea of how the DemocraticÂ White House and emboldened House Republicans will get along next year, keep an eye on Vice PresidentÂ Joseph R. Biden Jr. andÂ Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican.
Mr. Biden, the administration’s point man touting the economic stimulus, andÂ Mr. Issa, the Republicans’ top House investigator who calledÂ White House claims of the program’s success fake, have made peace for now. But will the cooperative spirit last?
Both men have been known for over-the-top rhetoric, and there was little reason for them to cooperate while Democrats controlled the House.
But just as the House Republican election victories in November forced PresidentÂ Obama to compromise on taxes, it ledÂ Mr. Biden to a peace pact withÂ Mr. Issa that may avoid a torrent of Republican subpoenas.
The Biden-Issa relationship is important to voters because it can be a harbinger of the political atmosphere going into the 2012 presidential and congressional elections.
