When it comes to David Petraeus's job performance on protecting the U.S., there is no partisan line.  Both sides agree, he is:

(Sen. Feinstein) "A great leader, and could have really been a super transitional figure for the CIA."

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Democrat from California.  She's the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and was on "FOX News Sunday."  The Committee's ranking Republican is Georgia's Saxby Chambliss.

(Sen. Chambliss) "He is a guy who has probably contributed more to the safety of the United States of America over the last decade than any one single individual."

Chambliss on ABC's "This Week."
