    Who will staff it? What policies will they pursue? Let's assume a divided, slightly favoring GOP Congress.

    I predict Tim Geithner and Hillary are gone. I also predict we will see unprecedented use of presidential powers to implement policy.

    Continuation of Bush/Obama policies.

    Tim Geithner will be gone, but the Federal Reserve Board will name his replacement (And give it to Willard to announce so he can ACT like he's in the loop)

    Of course Hillary will be gone, she's a Democrat. She'll be replaced by a Republican Hillary.

    As a side note Rabbi, I'd like to get some bets going with you as to how the Mitt Admin will procede (if he wins). Just choose the others avitar for a week or month or so. How bout it?

    What it will look like is highly dependent on the make-up of congress. Republicans are certain to disregard reelection as a sign of anything America wants and double down on the obstructionist hyperbolic crap.

    A second Obama administration would surely be less legislatively productive than the first. There's some chance that a "grand bargain" might be accomplished that would reduce deficits, but it is far from certain.

    On issues that don't require legislative approval, I expect there would be quite a bit of continuity between a first and second administration. Perhaps the largest achievement would be the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, which I expect to proceed more or less on schedule.
