    to control the House instead of the Senate if we could only have one House.  On the one hand, being able to approve judges, appointees and treaties is a nice thing - if you can approve them (I'm looking at the Republicans who sank that disability treaty last fall).  On the other hand, having the Republicans in the House have to come up with the cuts they want to make in the budget puts them on the spot and I think it's better they originate the budget bills.  It should give the Democrats something to hit them over the head with, if the media would just stop fawning all over Ryan's biceps.  

    I hope beginning in 2015 Nancy Pelosi AND Harry Reid are the leaders in their respective houses.
