They aren't buying corsages or planning limo rentals, but Prom Dresses Hill lawmakers have been experiencing a bit of pre-prom pressure as they scramble to find dates for next week's State of the Union address. In the name of bipartisanship, Congress decided to buck the traditional split-house seating arrangement and adopt Sen. Mark Udall's suggestion to sit for the president's speech alternating Republican, Democrat, Republican, Democrat, and so on. That means it's incumbent on One Shoulder Floor Length Prom Dress member to find a friend across the aisle -- a bit of a challenge, given that there are 43 more Republicans in Congress than there are Democrats.
But Nevada's House delegation has come up with a solution: the three of them are going to sit together. Shelley Berkley, the only Democrat and the only woman of the set, thus gets two tall Republican men One Shoulder Front Slit Long Evening Gown her dates. (She did the asking.) She'll likely sit between Dean Heller and Joe Heck -- who, as the newest member of the delegation, has already been charged with getting them good seats. "He'll be going down a few hours early to reserve seats together," said Heck spokesman Darren Littell.
"He'll be picking out seats on what has traditionally been the Republican side of the chamber -- also at Berkley's suggestion -- as two of the three of them are in the GOP." And what of One Shoulder Pleated Blue Prom Gowns senators? Well, Republican John Ensign has apparently already found a Democratic date, but he and his office are staying mum as to who it is. (Reporters will be watching from the press rafters.) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office hasn't made an announcement either -- but it's safe to assume that Reid, by virtue of his leadership position, won't have all that much say in the matter.
