      •  Well, the common wisdom is the (0+ / 0-)

        president's party always loses seats in the mid-term.  it was part of why the giant yawn happened with regard to GTOV in 2010 around here.

        McCain wouldn't have been able to do anything with the economy either, ergo, MORE democrats may have been elected to the House to show displeasure with him.

        •  the Democrats (0+ / 0-)

          would not have blocked stimulus or jobs bills that McCain had proposed.  Neither would the Republicans because they don't care about deficits when there are Republican presidents.
