  •  How does O do this with this current crop of R's (6+ / 0-)

    It takes two to tango and I can't see a grand coalition of R's breaking ranks to go with a compromise.  Even if you can, is  it's even possible to get it done with Boehner at the helm with Cantor scheming at every corner to wrangle away his power? What a headache! This is what you get when you subvert democracy with gerrymandering and electing lunatics.

      Fortunately i'm not in his shoes (you'd be so screwed if I was).

      I dunno.  Try and get 30 senators now, something like 17 senators after the new lot are sworn in?  The math changes slightly in the new House.

      Is it (even?) possible for Pelosi to be sworn speaker of the new house?
