    Possible, but I think it depends on who has the most anti-incumbency energy. I think that will remain with Republicans for the short-term. Democrats have a lot of ground to make-up in the House, but less so in the Senate.

    Congress is fine. The American public is what divides it. Special interests are also good for the country. It's just that people whine about the other people's special interests.

    In time, yes. But this can be a significant short-term victory for Republicans if they take the White House in 2016. They would have a short window to replicate the reforms pushed by President Obama and the Democratic Party. After that point, I would not be surprised in the least that their majorities start to fall thereafter.

    I'm glad to see you hanging in there and not running like GOPs did from their brand since 2006.
    The election map could have been won blind-folded--we'll see how smart they are in 2016.

    Of course Mitch will ask for straight-up-and-down votes as he did last decade--or threaten the nuclear option on legislation.
    The GOP invented the nuclear option but some posters keep lying about it .

    Hour history reflects you character. Calling me prejudice while pretending to be centrist at convenient times doesn't help that faux image.

    I have never claimed to be a centrist. I have said I am nonideological.

    Yeah, ABC just announced Tillis as the winner. I missed that one. Time for bed, this was all I was waiting on.
    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.
