    I don't quite yet know how I feel about this as a possibility.

    I favored McCain, saying the two electoral branches of government don't always work so well under one party comtrol.

    One legislative house split between the two major parties is not such a bad idea...but...

    with the bitter partisan divide, will a split legislative branch work to the betterment of society, or one or both parties?

    There is little chance the Republicans will win the Senate.

    It's a naive fantasy. All Republicans are consumed with Global Obstruction Pathology. They exist to obstruct and when they obstruct, America loses.

    The same way the Democrats obstructed Social Security reform and the judges they didnt like? Both parties do what they can to stop policies they don't agree with. Stop dishonestly pretending like only the other side does it.

    The country works best with a GOP controlled Congress and a fiscally conservative Democrat in the White House.

    Dems are within striking distance of losing every Senate race and 100 House seat and that's WITHOUT one of the pantybombers friends even attempting an attack that we could have prevented.

    That wasn't obstruction. America likes SS the way it is and opposing the judges, as has been proven recently, was a public service.
