    against the GOP Congress. I still half believe that he caved on extending the tax cuts for the wealthiest in 2010 order to build a campaign around that this year.  The reality is, the GOP is almost guaranteed to control the House and it's a tossup whether they will control the Senate too.  If they do, the next two years will be tough but 2014 will be a showdown.  With the economy improving, he has a real chance of nationalizing the Congressional races and we have a shot at two years of control at the end of his second term.

    But he has to get reelected first.
