    I see some major budget battles coming up, especially since we couldn't get a budget passed even with our current majorities.

      On the budget, that is. They shut down the government rather than give Clinton one inch, and they paid the price. Since this batch of crazy frosh is even more riddled with extremists and Obama isn't nearly as spineless as Clinton, I'm predicting some nastier battles much earlier on. Should be fun, although I expect the SCLM to cluck at both sides about how they should be playing nicer.
