Biden makes peace offering to rising House Republican

For an early idea of how the Democratic White House and emboldened House Republicans will get along next year, keep an eye on Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican.

Mr. Biden, the administration’s point man touting the economic stimulus, and Mr. Issa, the Republicans’ top House investigator who called 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 President Obama to compromise on taxes, it led Mr. Biden to a peace pact with 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.
