President Bush hasn't vetoed a single bill, a modern day record for veto-free government.
Although the streak could end next month - Mr. Bush is threatening a veto if Congress eases his restrictions on federal funding for stem-cell research - the Bush era thus far underscores a historically high-water mark of collegial cooperation between Congress and the White House, experts say.
Given the bloat of the Highway Bill, perhaps divided government isn't such a bad idea after all.
