Most Americans were heartened by the surge of bipartisanship in Washington after Osama bin Laden’s death. But don’t expect that cooperation to last long. Domestic politics already is back with a vengeance, Politico reports. Congressmen from both parties promise to push conflicting legislation on spending and taxes.

“I wish I could say that the sense of unity that our government had in leading us to this attack — and, I think, the thrill and the increased sense of security that the American people had — would lead us here on Capitol Hill to sustain this unity on the other big threat facing our country, a very different threat, which is our debt and deficit,” Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., told Politico. “But I’m not optimistic about that.”
