2. The election was decisive, and when it is so overwhelmingly decisive, and historic in its result, it marks a tidal shift in the citizen's political mood.
3. That decisive win can/might have just enough Dems running for cover in the Senate on key votes (going along with R's)... for they see the writing on the wall. Perhaps not. Then we have Obama's Veto Pen. Dems just might vote to cover their asses, knowing Obama will veto said legislation.
4. Nobody will know until it's been played out, for NOBODY could have forecast the defeat handed D's thanks to Obama. It was unfathomable 2-years ago.
5. Nobody could have foreseen a political uprising from the Right... for it hasn't happened in this manner in my many decades of following politics. It marks uncharted territory, and the decisive win on Nov. 2 reflects that monumental shift. It took a mere 2-4 years depending on how you look at it. The decisive 1994 win took 40-years.
6. But to our argument about the usage and meaning of the word "DECISIVE", points 3, 4 & 5 don't mean squat.
Contrary to your statement, the election was decisive; from the State houses, governorships, and the House and Senate.
What results from the decisive election is another story that we can only surmise, for I'm not clairvoyant. Are you?
The election: D E C I S I V E... and H I S T O R I C.
