Two Down, One to Go ~ Harry Reid

It sure didn't take long for the Democrats to stake their position for the next congressional session. The President has stated that the loss of so many seats was a failure to communicate on his part. I wonder if that's a polite way of telling us how dense we are!

Today Nancy Pelosi has said she's been persuaded to run for House minority leader. That their accomplishments were too important for America to be repealed or amended. Here is one of the most pugnacious Speakers the House has ever had. Not to mention disliked.

The next question is whether or not Harry Reid will remain as Senate Majority Leader. I should imagine so though Chuck Schumer is nipping at his heels.

This does not indicate to me there will be much across the aisle compromise. The only mystery that remains is how the Republicans are going to comport themselves. In the last few days we've seen that both the House and Senate leaders are of a more clement nature than their Democratic counterparts. We've also seen that both can show a great deal of resolve in stating their goals. It's sure a contrast in styles! Beware an iron fist in the velvet glove!

Only two full days have passed since the election. What do I see? Pretty much business as usual. It won't be pretty.

I agree. I do not see either side giving an inch. It will be a stalemate.
