    Who sees them as "the party in power"? They control half of Congress - that is it?? I think many see them as being on the upward end of a momentum shift; but how could anyone with intelligence believe that Republicans are now "in power"?

    This is true. Forgive me if I have little faith in the party of hell no working with him. I also have little faith that Obama will have the cojones to endure a standoff with them though. Ultimately, the buck stops at the White House. (Unless it was the Reagan administration or Bush43's last two years. )

    Re: Will Obama be re-elected?

    To answer the OP, I wish that it weren't true, but I don't see how he couldn't be re-elected. The only possibility, I believe, is a Hillary Clinton-type challenge from within his own party. What Republican has the character, name recognition, or credibility at the national level to bring the mainstream Repubs and Tea Partiers back together? I didn't think so.

    I agree. Unfortunately, according to some here, Nov. 2 was a referendum against compromise.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    If you're going to be overly picky about "big," then there's simply not enough historical sample to draw any kind of conclusions from.
