Obama Wins Second Term
Well, Thank God.
Really. If Romney had won, … well, you get the idea. It would have been bad.
As it stands, the Dems have won control of the Senate, and the GOP will almost certainly control the House… putting us back where we have been for the past two years.
My guess: the GOP will continue with obstructionism. The question: will Dems be smart enough to limit the filibuster to, say, 5 or 10 per year, or else make it a talk-and-then-vote deal, with the cloture vote going the way of the dinosaur. Not the nuclear option, but enough for Democrats to actually start passing stuff finally–they have been blocked for two years, and hamstrung for four.
Side note: already Fox is coming up with excuses. Current headline: “How Media Tipped Scales in Obama’s Favor.”
