    Thats valid and that will be the test going into 2016. Frankly, some good things happened towards the end of Clinton's term. Obama eats some humble pie, there is potential for it to happen again.

    We really don't know how Obama will react to it simply because he's been utterly shielded by Reid holding up just about everything in the Senate.

    Kobie, yeah, that's fair. The Republicans haven't built a track record of being so these last few years either. Gotta admit that.

    It's a GOP night. Not gonna lie. But this is not news. GOP tends to own the midterms. That's just how it shakes out these days.

    Did you call out "gloating" then? Just curious.

    Agree. McConnell was a gentleman when he gave her lots of credit in his speech - she should have been a lady in her defeat and wished him congratulations on his victory - the voters decided the outcome, not him.

    We'll learn from this. We don't throw temper tantrums the way your side does when we lose. See you in 2016.
    Do your best. I don't have a side. I voted for a Dem Senator today. I do, however, think Repubs will do themselves a lot of good during the next two years and will field a formidable POTUS candidate in 2016.

    you gonna keep pushing the equivalence bit still. Predictable. You asking me what I posted years ago... dunno. Don't care. Why don't you disappear for a while searching for it and dig it up?

    I'll be happy to see old Nuclear option Reid in the minority. I would rather see a more moderate in charge of the senate than McConnell, but if he runs the senate as he said he would, perhaps I will be surprised. By the way Ernst has taken the lead in Iowa. So if she wins or Tillis in NC it is a done deal without Louisiana.
    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.

    And BTW, what were your claims again about the Kansas senate race?

    The magic number 6 was just achieved!
