The question in this OP is first-grade politics.
I expected at least a high school level of political science when I joined DP.
McConnell is giving an excellent news conference right now and he is very intelligent.
I expect him to try and whip EVERY Senator and Congressperson in line .
Chemists Have Solutions .
Harry Reid is Obama's yes man.
The Senate has been a reflection of the Obama White House for almost seven years now, incompetent.
Nothing more needs to be said.
No more than republican senators not allowing anything to pass hurt their party. Sooner or later, the total combined uselessness of the senate will have to cost every incumbent. Only then will they work together.
From here on though i expect the dems will shift their focus to the clintons and mention obama sparingly.
