I have many web part pages that contain multiple document libraries and/or lists on the page. Using SharePoint 2010

How do I align the columns in each list so that they are aligned with the same columns in the lists below it. Purely for visual appeal when looking at the page.

VISUAL Example:
WEB PART PAGE

Library A has TITLE, DATE,     AUTHOR
Library B has TITLE,     DATE, AUTHOR
Library C has TITLE,  DATE,        AUTHOR
 
I want
Library A has TITLE, DATE, AUTHOR
Library B has TITLE, DATE, AUTHOR
Library C has TITLE, DATE, AUTHOR
How do I align  the columns in each library so that they are ALL in alignment even though they are seperate?

Ok i see now.. This because of file names or titles.
What u ave to do is to add a content search webpart to search all lists or library in to one webpart.. this can be a better solution
