    •  Are you aware that the House of Representatives (0+ / 0-)

      operates on the principle of "majority rule".  A simple majority gives you total control of that body?  The Democrats won't be able to offer much "leadership" from the minority, as you will learn.

        •  I have to refer you my previous comment. (0+ / 0-)

          If you are defining "leadership" as taking positions contrary to the popular will, then I would say that you can do that just as easily as a private citizen.  Which is what you will be if you're an elected official acting contrary to the public will.
