  •  Dems pick up 2 Senate seats, they lose JoeMentum (9+ / 0-)

    and Ben Nelson, and they pick up a net of 7 House seats.  Plus, GOP will have to restore tax cuts in 2 days.   They have far more to lose here than we do.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

    •  Not sure if they will or not. (0+ / 0-)

      I was assuming that a mini-deal gets done before the cliff so sequester avoided and taxes are cut.

      The House Republicans are still what they are, and adding Liz Warren doesn't really change that dynamic.   Having 2 more Democrats in the Senate will help keep that majority in 2014 and may pull the Senate leftward but it doesn't change that Boehner may not even be Speaker on January 3rd and the 113th doesn't look much different from the 112nd.

      Washington and Colorado said that you've got to legalize it. Hope the DOJ respects that.

      The House - aka Repub lites - so we're talking about a wholly different dynamic here post Jan 1.  Man just having Joementum replaced by a REAL DEM - very sweet!

      The WH just needs to hang tough until then; here's hoping.
