    and how he handled the Senate the next 15 months?  Does he double down on obstruction and force Reid to use the "nuclear option" or does he try to moderate himself a bit to defend against the "McConnell is part of the problem in Washington" attack.  

    Grimes should make the case that in two years there will be a new President, and that President could be a Republican and the GOP could have the Senate majority and does Mitch McConnell believe, and does the Kentucky voter believe that Harry Reid should obstruct to the level that McConnell has.  That their stated primary goal should be to see the newly elected Republican President is a one term President? Or should they expect more from their Senators, that their senators even from differing parties than the President should try to find common ground and work with them, and respect that the country as a whole has spoken and elections have consequences?

    If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.
