    2012 will be interesting. Depending on how well Republicans live up to their promises will determine how well they do in 2012.

    Of course, this is not exactly a new development.

    Fox News... They have called 2 or 3 races tonight for candidates that were losing. They assured the viewers that their calls were correct in spite of what the numbers showed.

    I think it has to do with what districts had reported and which have not.

    This could be due to what districts are reporting. If liberal areas haven't been counted yet then that still weighs in regarding the prediction.

    I'm so proud to be a Minnesotan tonight. 70% of us in Minneapolis voted for our Muslim Congressman. He's awesome, too.

    Should be fun to see a Dem Senate and GOP House. Maybe they'll start working together... slowly

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    I'm LOVING this random guy, Carl something, doing the board for Fox.

    Not only did he acknowledge that Ron Paul was who the Tea Party at its roots originally rallyed around. He also clearly laid out the whole notion with Manchin and how he may end up be voting in regards to the next 2 years and why. And now he's putting forth a very interesting notion that the Republicans losing the senate but winning the house big may be the worst case scenario in the mind of the Obama camp. The reason for this is because a full republican congress would put Obama at a place where the answer is simple in regards to compromising or attempting to stay fast. However with it split like this, the answer becomes more muddled as Obama must either choose to not just stand fast but actively defend the Senate which will likely muck up the stuff passed by the Republican house OR split from the senate and or convince them to split and compromise. A much more difficult task that is likely to cause him political problems no matter which way he goes. Essentially a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation where as the other way would've been an all or nothing type of scenario. It also gives the House coverage to pass some things that may be a bit more "radical" with the idea that its likely to get turned down in the Senate anyways but makes it look like they're actively working towards their principles.

    He does acknowledge that its not what the REPUBLICANS likely think is the best scenario, they'd of course rather have full governing power rather than some potential political advantage, but from the Obama side of things he thinks it would be the worst scenario and apparently was something he articulated prior to any of hte results really coming in but just went on to fully explain why now.

    The guys insightful and just interesting to listen to this entire time. One of the pluses of the Fox broadcast so far.

    Now if only they could combine it with CNN and have him speaking as a hologram projected from an iPad that is filmed on the space station 20 years in the future.
