See? Democrats and Republicans *can* work together on something...

...Too bad the "something" isn't something truly substantive and meaningful in the day-to-day lives of average Americans. 

On anything "substantive and meaningful," the Republicans are still the "Party of NO!"

From the Washington Post -
The Republican National Committee adopted a new schedule for the 2012 presidential primaries Friday, agreeing to a plan worked out in concert with Democrats and designed to delay the start of the campaign season.

The new schedule is designed to make it difficult for a candidate to rack up an insurmountable number of delegates early in the process, forcing candidates to campaign across the country.

Under the new schedule, no state would hold a primary or caucus before the first Tuesday in February 2012, in attempt to avoid a repetition of 2008, when the Iowa caucuses were held Jan. 3.

Iowa and New Hampshire would retain their status as the nation's first contests, held in February, joined by South Carolina and Nevada.
 The adoption of the new primary schedule is contingent on the Democratic National Committee also adopting the proposal later this year.

Of course, once the rank-and-file Rs find out that something was worked out in concert with the Ds, look for the members of the RNC who voted for the proposal to be denounced as "RINOs" (Republicans In Name Only) and purged from their party.
