As the 2012 presidential election nears and campaigns get even nastier, we present this cute video as an example of unity and togetherness. It's a rat and a cat sharing a bowl a milk! (No symbolism here, we promise.)

It would be easy to draw comparisons between these two animals and Tom and Jerry, but, in truth, they're nothing like the famous cartoon duo. In fact, the rat is clearly in charge and even starts to drag the bowl toward himself when kitty gets too close.

There's definitely a lesson to be learned here. If these two natural enemies can overcome their differences and (sort of) work together, why can't the rest of us? Here's hoping the presidential candidates watch this video.
