    Ain't nothin' important getting through that dysfunctional body!

    The track for the foreseeable future (that is, until January 2015): the Senate will have to pass a bill that Speaker Boehner can stomach putting on the House floor, meaning that he's willing to tolerate Nancy Pelosi delivering Democrats to help pass it.

    If the going gets tough, the House can hang on amendments and go to conference with the Senate. (Which Tea Party zealots will surely regard as capitulation because conferences involve compromise.)

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
