True, and President Obama and the elected Congressional Democrats will need to work better together if they hope to hold on to the Presidency. Although they could hold on if the Republicans can't field a viable alternative. (Not Sarah Palin)
California this year had a solution-less Governors race, Jerry Brown or Meg Whitman. In California it is almost impossible to elect a Republican. We ended up with Brown because so many voters have died since he was last elected as Governor in 1978. Even this campaign he did not run on his record as Governor, but more on his fathers. He was generally considered a very poor Governor 28 years ago. No matter what he says to the voters, he will "do his own thing".
