BIPARTISANSHIP — A LOST ART?

Republicans and Democrats have always been philosophically cleaved, but historically the parties came together to forge major public policies that changed American lives. Are groundbreaking legislative achievements still possible in a fractious Congress and politically divided America?

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, now looking into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — will candidly assess 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, New York Times editor of live journalism for D.C., moderates the conversation.
