Mathematica has built-in functions for dealing with multiple lists.
Alternately, you can get around the fact that List[] isn't listable with
ListableFunction[li1, li2] /. ListableFunction -> List
For example
li1 + li2 /. Plus -> List
This won't work with numbers; the function will be evaluated at
the number pairs and each pair will be replaced by a single value.
