"Democrats, who hope to hold onto their 51-47 advantage in the 100-seat Senate, are pouring money into heavily Democratic Connecticut to solidify support for Murphy. Last month, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee began running ads for him"

Putting your money into saving the Senate... actually good strategy. If you lose the Presidency AND the House, you can at least gridlock things with the Senate.

Oh. sorry. I mean 'Encourage enlightened compromise'. Gridlock is a term you reserve for the Republicans.

Not me. I use it to describe the situation in general and I expect it to (unfortunately) continue.

Anybody read Woodward's book about the budget fiasco last year? Pretty damning of all involved.

Odd isn't it that Clinton could (pre Tea Party days) work with the house and senate to move things along. Why rustbelt would attribute current day GOP tactics to incoming Dems is informative in that Dems have mostly been amenable to dialog and compromise.

Why would you think they would borrow a page from the GOP and suddenly become disinterested in how to make government work?
