President Obama has been schmoozing it of late;
He and 12 Republicans just had a dinner date;
Had lunch with Paul Ryan to talk budget policy,
Even though the men all differ philosophically
With their views on government and what it ought to do...
Still, he's made an effort which, I think, is overdue.
When you're playing politics sometimes you have to schmooze.
That is how the deals get done; if not, you're gonna lose.
There have been some other signs the ice is growing cracks;
That the moderates will start to guard each other's backs.
Hope that this No Labels movement really catches on
Before any chance to be bi-partisan is gone.
