One of the famous political odd couples is California's Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and first lady Maria Shriver, a member of the Kennedy clan. Their home puts their political differences on stark display these days, as the New York Times illustrates:
"I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system," Ms. Shriver said. "That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn't."
Shriver can afford to be generous. Katherine, the only one of their four children who is old enough to vote, is also going with Obama, meaning Democrats will carry the home of one of the most famous Republicans in the country.
