What?s the likelihood that Democrats could control Washington in 2012? | The Signal - Yahoo! News

kinda interesting way to look at it...

if the election were today i'd bet this odds based assessment would be right in the ballpark.
could be a good thing...a dem prez with a repub congress (both houses)...seemed to workout pretty good the last time...
ah...but there are differences...Clinton/Gingrich seems much better than Obama/Boehner

If Obama gets a mandate it could sweep some congressmen into office.
I just hope people have learned their lesson and get out and vote the newbies out who are so disruptive to our country right now.

If they wanted to change the status quo they would tell Israel to fight her own battles for starters. Save a lot of money there. And how about voting to end the religious exemptions if they really wanted to end status quo? Got your support in the fight to end the status quo?
