proof Democratic congress to work with here? I can't find anythign saying so, but the Dems really thumped the Repubs tonight. A president who's party also controls congress is usually a bad thing. They can do whatever they want now, good for the country or not. I prefer to have one party in the white house and another party running congress. The gridlock keeps either party from getting a stranglehold on the country. One of the worst things that happened to Bush was getting a Repub majority congress, it didn't take long for his approval rating to drop to the lowest ever save Truman. Anybody got a long term Dow chart? Look back to 1994, a Dem in the white house but all the Dems in congress were swept out in a thumpin'. The Dow skyrocketed immediatley afterward. (BTW, I was working in a call center back then and we took phone calls from people who wanted to get a copy of the Contract With America. God I hated those calls.) I don't have a party affiliation and I voted for Obama. I hope his party with this huge majority doesn't fuck it all up. But I know they will. They always have and this time will be no exception. It's just a matter of time. will they even make it to the midterms?
