    Obama won he was not my choice bit no gripes or complaints here congrats to him. So we have democrat president a republican house and a democrat senate so my question is what happens now in terms of dealing withe problems we face as a nation? We have the same democrat leadership that would not work with republicans for the first two years of obamas term and the same republican leadership who would not work with democrats for the last two years this looks like four more years of broken gridlocked government to me. Anyone see it different?

    Gridlock is the best we can hope for.

    The Democrats will push to win the house back in 2014, and keep the Senate. The key indicator will be the financial health of Blue states such as California, and Illinois, as those are models for progressive governance. If they manage to keep them bandaged up they may sweep all 3 parts of the federal government. If one of them falls, then watch out.

    How's that supposed to help the country? All that strategy will get us is a House reversal in '14, IMO. The American people are getting tired of that BS and they said so last night.

    What the people said last night is that the country is irrevocably divided with half of them intent on stopping the predations of the other half.

    No... The majority (barely) said that they were happy with the way things are going.

    Congressional races have a different, local dynamic. I think it'll take another two years for those voters to realize they've been sold a plan that just doesn't work. Patience.
