    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Maybe, maybe not. It depends on whether or not voters spilling for Republicans will see it as Republicans unable to get anything done or as a step toward being able to get things done without a Democratic President. Furthermore, one massive cautionary tale is that the American public largely does not like to re-elect a Party for three terms without it being the same President.

    Of course a very low voter turnout midterm election sounds like mandate to you.

    Let them gloat during this 6-year itch when they should have blown out the DEMs.
    We'll enjoy the daily GOP civil war and the 24 Senate GOPs up for reelection in 2016 Senate compared to only ten for the DEMs .

    Thing is Rob, I'm not gloating. Not in the least.

    If the Republicans can't get their **** together, it may very well wok out like what you are describing.

    Sure, I'm hoping not, for the sake of the country, but I don't deny that it isn't a possibility.

    If anything, there's far more work ahead given this positive result. A small win, as you've said, but it's one to build on. Let's see if they can do it.

    I don't see the gain in doing so. The Senate Democrats lost much of the electorate support, such as we are seeing the result of here, by doing so, IMHO.

    Better to leave your opponent a chance to save face, and him knowing that you've allowed him to do so. Next time around, he'll do the same for you, or at least may be in a more negotiating mood for it. It's better for the process of governing.
    I believe this is where McConnell will shine.
