In January 2009 , the next president and Congress will have to find consensus on an agenda to confront the many challenges our nation faces. In the midst of the intense partisanship of an election, September 11th is a day for us to remember that our national security transcends party affiliation. Regardless of the outcome in November, America's foreign policy can only be fully successful with support from both sides of the aisle. That is why the Partnership for a Secure America is bringing Democrats and Republicans together on September 11th , to seek foreign policy and national security solutions that both sides can support.
