In a spirit of bipartisanship, Nevada lawmakers from both parties will try to get along during President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.  Democratic Congresswoman Shelley Berkley will sit with fellow Nevadans and Republicans Joe Heck and Dean Heller, while Republican Senator John Ensign says he’ll sit next to an unidentified Democrat.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also supports the idea of bipartisan seating, but staffers aren’t sure who Reid will sit next to.  The idea was proposed by Colorado Senator Mark Udall, to show civility in the wake of the shooting that left Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords injured.
