Late night-smash: Congress finds common ground

"You hear a lot about the Democrats and the Republicans and how you can't get this and you can't get that," Letterman said. "We have put together a segment that we hope will give the legislative bodies in Washington the incentive they need to get together."

The clip entitled, "United States Congress: Finding Common Ground," then went on to show former Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) expressing their love of horses.

The one contradicting statement came from ex-Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio) who exclaimed, "I love monkeys."
