As Republicans prepare for their likely takeover of the House and possibly the Senate after next Tuesday’s elections, at least one prominent GOP legislator thinks the party should prepare to work with President Barack Obama. That’s Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, The Hill reports.

Lindsey Graham, ObamaHe says Republicans should engage the president on issues such as an energy bill that doesn’t include cap and trade, Social Security, and job creation.

"My belief is that, if we get back power in the House, and get close in the Senate, that we ought to really clamp down on spending and reform the government," Graham told WVOC radio in South Carolina.

"But we ought to not put ourselves in a position of being the 'party of no' to hard problems. But we ought to sit down with the president and work on Social Security, come up with an energy policy without cap-and-trade.
